Xbox consoles are the first to support Dolby Vision for gaming. Microsoft has also been working with Dolby to bring some benefits of Dolby Vision to existing HDR10 and Auto HDR games. Microsoft is bringing “new visual enhancement capabilities that utilize Dolby Vision technology to deliver an improved visual experience for thousands of existing HDR10 and Auto HDR games,” says Slattery.

If it does, you can enable Dolby Vision gaming support in Settings > General > TV & display options > Video Modes > Dolby Vision for Gaming. You may need the latest TV firmware update to enable Dolby Vision or 120Hz modes.
You’ll need a compatible Dolby Vision TV to take advantage of this new feature on the Xbox Series X / S consoles, and Microsoft is also recommending enabling automatic low-latency mode (ALLM). Dolby Vision is compatible with ALLM, Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), and 120Hz games.
Developers can choose between integrating Dolby Vision into their game engine or taking advantage of the built-in Dolby Vision technology within the Xbox developer platform. Games that use Auto HDR aren’t true Dolby Vision games, but Microsoft says they’ll benefit from the Dolby Vision mapping technology on Xbox to display more accurate images on Dolby Vision TVs.
