    YouTube TV is accessible on a variety of devices, but not all of them offer 5.1 surround sound.

    In June 2021, the streaming television service first included 5.1 Dolby Audio functionality on its platform, although only for Samsung, LG, Vizio, and the original Chromecast. As a result, consumers with a home theatre system could not fully appreciate it while watching YouTube TV material on their streaming devices. The firm realized that 5.1 surround sound compatibility is vital for consumers on other devices in March of this year, and revealed that it is evaluating support for Android TV, Roku, and GoogleTV. The public distribution of 5.1 audio functionality for these systems has finally begun, more than two months later.

    YouTube TV Has 5.1 SS Option Now

    5.1 audio compatibility is coming to Android TV, Google TV, and Roku devices this week, according to YouTube TV. Chromecast with Google TV now supports 5.1 audio on YouTube TV, according to a separate tweet from the official Google account. In addition, Fire TV, Apple TV, PS5/4, and other game consoles will have to surround sound audio capabilities from the platform.

    When it first announced its $20-per-month 4K add-on in June of last year, the firm indicated the upgrade would be available “within weeks.” The majority of YouTube TV’s rivals only provide stereo sound for live TV, but 5.1 sound is on-demand material. You will be able to experience surround sound output if you have a suitable speaker system or device, and the program you are watching supports 5.1 audio. There is no need to download or enable any app updates or options.
