The Disney+ subscribers were facing an issue where Chromecast with Google TV contents do not support Dolby Atmos. This issue has been lingering on for months now and the users are constantly complaining about this. The prediction suggests the involvement of Disney in this issue.

However, the users of Netflix and Prime Video have not given out any such complaints about facing issues with Dolby audio. This issue only persists with the Disney+ app. Now, some threads in the Google support forums suggest that the Disney+Dolby Atmos issue on Chromecast is now fixed. The users can watch Disney+ shows with Dolby Atmos.

The fact worth noting here is that there is not rolling out of any software update for that matter from neither Chromecast nor Disney+. It is quite likely that the issue has a server-side fix. The users can watch content on Disney+ with Dolby Atmos. A user-suggested fix says that if you still face the problem with the Dolby Atmos, uninstall and re-install the Disney+ app. The issue is likely to fix automatically.

  1. Unfortunately this issue is back: since the last update on late october 2023, Dolby Atmos disappeared again on Chromecast With Google TV 4 on Disney+. But this issue is not with my equipment, due these reasons:

    1- Star+ (also from Disney+) keeps with Dolby Atmos
    2- Disney+ using the own app in LG screen, works with no problem with Atmos
