Following release in theaters and via streaming tomorrow, HBO Max is confirming how you’ll be able to watch Wonder Woman 1984 on the new Chromecast with Google TV. Unfortunately, that lacks support for Dolby Atmos.
Google’s latest streaming stick is a solid choice that we have praised for its price and useful interface, and on top of that it also supports most streaming formats for 4K and HDR. This includes Dolby Atmos, but unfortunately, HBO Max lacks support for that audio format on Chromecast with Google TV.
On a support page, HBO Max perfectly explains how and where you will be able to watch Wonder Woman 1984 in 4K HDR and includes the new Chromecast with Google TV as well as Google Chromecast Ultra. In addition, select Android TV, Fire TV, Apple TV 4K, and as long as your TV supports it, the capable Rokus can stream with Dolby Vision and HDR10.
The HBO Max app has added support for just 4K HDR in its latest app update, but HBO specifically noted that Chromecast with Google TV does not support Dolby Atmos, even though the device itself is not compatible with other apps. Supports audio standard. HBO does not specify a reason for the lack of support, and it is strange In college Google’s dreamer lacks it.
Wonder Woman will be the first title on HBO Max available in 1984 in 4K Ultra HD, HDR 10, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. The 4K HDR viewing experience will be available on select 4K devices. Wonder Woman 1984 is also available in HD on all supported devices.
pay attention: Dolby Atmos is not available with Chromecast with Google TV.
The lack of Dolby Atmos on the new Chromecast is a shame, but we’re at least glad that 4K HDR will still be available. It is expected that HBO Max will solve whatever problems are occurring before other major releases of the platform this year.
