I'd imagine it's aimed at people using headphones, not so much the phone speaker.Completely agree.
Still can't get my head around Atmos on a phone/single speaker or why you'd want it. If you're using the phone as a source device to feed into a speaker system then that's something else, but much like 4k on a 6inch screen playing Atmos through a phones speaker just doesn't make any sense to me whatsoever.
Cool!...I've listened to a few of the Dolby Atmos tracks on Tidal (there aren't many) with my Sony WH-1000XM3...
Sorry, only just seen this as it was sent to my spam folder! I was using a Huawei P30 Pro with the latest Tidal app from the Play store.Cool!
Might you be able to please post the hardware you're using (phone make/model etc) and version of the Tidal app you're running?
I'm hoping the Tidal phone APK that supports Atmos is made available somewhere like apkmirror and that it could be sideloaded on the Shield ala the Xcloud app.
Agree completely that Atmos on the supported devices so far makes zero sense since that means stereo headphones but a device like the Shield that can bitstream makes all the sense in the world.
On the other hand if the app doesn't support bitstream it will be useless.
