Apple Music Lossless Audio and Dolby Atmos Rolling Out in India

Apple has officially revealed that Apple Music users in India will be able to listen to lossless audio. Not only that, but support for Spatial Audio and Dolby Atmos will be introduced as well, and all of these capabilities will be available to all users – even for Android users — at no additional cost. With Spatial Audio / Dolby Atmos, the Cupertino giant is kicking things off with a few thousand tracks, but this library will only increase over time. Meanwhile, everyone will have access to lossless audio, which includes all 75 million songs in Apple's library.

Lossless Audio In Apple Music

Simply said, you'll have access to a far higher-quality audio file, and the level of detail you'll be able to hear on audio speakers that support lossless audio and high-res audio formats will be unrivaled. These High-Res and Lossless audio files are also significantly larger in size when compared to a standard high-quality audio file.

Dolby Atmos Spatial Audio

This is similar to surround sound in home theatre systems, where speakers are placed in various locations around the room to give the impression of being surrounded by sound and its finer details. Except there are no static speakers surrounding you, and headphones and earphones like the Apple AirPods Max and Apple AirPods Pro provide the same level of immersion.

Support for 'Lossless' and 'Dolby Atmos' will appear as separate badges just below the name of the track you're listening to (as shown in the screenshot above). Since Apple Music's complete library is now accessible in lossless, you could have every music you listen to stream in lossless by default. You'd be streaming the lossless track with Atmos enabled for tracks that support Dolby Atmos.

When it comes to lossless music, Apple offers a variety of options for audiophiles. The Lossless tier on Apple Music begins at CD quality, which is 16 bit at 44.1 kHz (kilohertz), then progresses to 24 bit at 48 kHz, and is playable natively on Apple devices. Apple Music also offers Hi-Resolution Lossless up to 24 bits at 192 kHz for hardcore audiophiles.

Although you can listen to Lossless Audio on any device, you'll need an external DAC to listen to the Hi-Resolution Lossless tier, which goes up to 24 bits at 192 kHz.

You'll need to update your iPhone/ iPad to iOS 14.6 or iPadOS 14.6 to enjoy both Dolby Atmos and Lossless Audio.

Apple Music subscriptions in India begin at Rs 49 per month for the Student plan (which includes Apple TV+), Rs 99 for the Individual Apple Music plan, and Rs 149 for the Apple Music Family plan.

Facebook adds End-to-End Encryption for Voice and Video calls on Messenger

Facebook is bringing plenty of new features to Messenger users who enable end-to-end encryption (E2EE). With E2EE enabled, you can now make voice or video calls to Messenger contacts, just like you can with WhatsApp. Anyone outside of the sender and recipient, including Facebook, will not be able to listen to your voice and video calls if you use end-to-end encryption (E2EE) option, so it’s like adding an extra layer of security to your voice and video chats on Messenger. You can still report messages to Facebook if required, according to the company. Pic Credit: Facebook End-to-end encryption for text messages has been enabled in Facebook Messenger in 2016, when the company launched a "secret conversation" option to the app. That mode now includes the ability to make phone calls.
