Dolby has announced that Microsoft plans to add Dolby Digital Plus audio codec into Windows 8.
"With the incredible growth of online download and streaming media, particularly for video content, this agreement ensures a great audio experience for those consumers who wish to download or stream TV and movies containing Dolby Digital Plus," Microsoft Windows unit CFO Tami Reller said in a statement. "Additionally, all of their existing and future home videos recorded with Dolby Digital Plus audio will work great on Windows 8 right out of the box."
