Are you looking for Dolby Atmos apk installation guide? Then just keep reading, in this tutorial, I have explained simple methods to install Dolby Atmos on Android phones. All of us listen to our favorite music on smartphones while working, jogging or in the free time.
Even most of us love watching movies on our smartphones. There is something called Dolby Atmos surround which can take our music experience to the next level.
Do you know that Dolby digital surround technology is now available for our Android devices? Yes, we can download and install Dolby Atmos on Android with or without root. Before we start installing Dolby digital audio, let’s learn about it.
Know About Dolby Atmos Sound.
Well, Dolby Atmos is the next-generation surround sound technology. Dolby Laboratories first announced the Dolby Atmos in April 2012 and released it in June 2012. You may also love must have root apps for rooted phones.
Digital Dolby Atmos first introduced in cinemas later on it became possible to get it on SmartPhones and other Android devices as well.
Dolby Theater in Hollywood, California was the first to get Dolby Atmos surround setup.
Famous movies like Batman vs Superman, Star Wars used Dolby Digital Atmos surround sound.
Dolby surrounded cinemas have up to 64 speakers placed in various directions to create a 3D surround sound effect.
With the advancement of technology, Dolby Atmos became available for Android devices. Lenovo A7000 was the first smartphone to get Dolby Atmos technology.
Android developers ported Dolby Atmos from Lenovo A7000 to provide it to all Android devices. I have also shared best music downloader apps for Android.
How To Install Dolby Atmos On Android phones?
Well, currently only a few devices come with preinstalled Dolby Atmos. But don’t worry after the end of this guide you will get Dolby Atmos on your Android device.
There are two ways to install Dolby Atmos on Android devices. The first way will not require a rooted phone while trying the second way it will ask for root access.
If you have a Non-Rooted Android device, then you can get Dolby Atmos after installing Dolby Apk. If you have a Rooted phone, then you can install Dolby Atmos on Android by flashing a zip file.
Method-1: Install Dolby Atmos On Android Without Root
- Android phone (No Root Required).
- Google Play Music app.
- Dolby Atmos Apk.
- A cup of coffee (As you like).
Don’t want to root your android phone? Want to experience 3D surround sound? Get ready for a pleasant listening experience on your Android phone.
The first method is the simplest way to install Dolby Atmos on android without root. You need to download Dolby Atmos apk and do some tweaks in settings. So let’s dive into the tricky part of this method.
Steps to install Dolby Atmos on Android phone without root.
Download and install Dolby Atmos apk (without recovery) on your Android device. Before installing it make sure you have enabled the unknown sources installation option from settings.
Reboot your Android phone after Dolby Atmos apk installed successfully. Don’t open the app yet; you need to follow more steps.
Install Google Play Music app from play store (Skip it if already installed). Only Google play music will work so don’t try other music apps like Spotify Premium.
Disable the default equalizer of your Android phone. You should do this to neglect unfortunately stopped the error. The default equalizer can be found in settings, or you can find it in Google play music.
Open the Google Play Music app and click on three horizontal lines in the upper left corner.
Click on the settings in the play music navigation and scroll down.
Navigate to the equalizer and open it now enable Dolby Atmos from there. Most of the time it will be activated automatically.
Go back to the music library and play any song. You can turn off the Dolby Atmos apk and test the sound before and after installation.
Boom you have successfully got Dolby Digital Plus effects. Use headphones for a better experience.
Important Note: To be honest you will not get the real Dolby Atmos effects without root. In this way, you can only get Dolby Digital Equalizer which will only work with Google Play Music. It is a must to disable the default equalizer on your device.
Method-2: Install Dolby Atmos On Android With Root
Below I have given the step by step instructions for installing Dolby Atmos on rooted Android phones.
- Rooted Android phone must be running on JellyBean 4.3 or above.
- Unlocked Bootloader.
- Custom Recovery installed (Twrp is preferred).
- Dolby Atmos Zip file.
- You must have proper knowledge of root, bootloader, custom recovery.
Do you want the heavenly feel while listening to your favorite music?
Well, take a long breath because you are going to achieve that feel. As you have learned that installing Dolby Atmos Apk without root will not give you the real Dolby sound mod.
So we need to flash Dolby Atmos zip file via custom recovery. It will enable the Digital audio mod in our phone’s whole Rom. So let’s give an injection of Dolby Audio to your phone.
Guide to Root: Root Android Without PC.
Steps to Install Dolby Atmos On Android via Custom Recovery.
Caution: If you don’t know about Root, unlocking OEM, or custom recovery then, please do not try this at all. Do some research before trying this method. Techonation or the author will not be held responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, or damaged devices.
Download Dolby Atmos zip file on your Android phone. The zip file is for only a rooted device with custom recovery installed. TWRP recovery is preferred in this case.
Backup your data (Recommended). You can use titanium backup, PC or any other backup option. In case something goes wrong you can recover your data that’s why backup is recommended.
Now Power off the device and reboot to recovery mode (by holding power button with volume up or volume down at the same time). It depends on the device. You can search on Google your device name+ access recovery mode.
Navigate to install and click on it. It is located on top of all buttons in TWRP recovery. If you are using Philz or CWM recovery, don’t worry process is same for all.
Locate and click on the Dolby Atmos zip file. Well, you can find it in the folder where you have downloaded it. For UC browser it’s in UC downloads and for Chrome browser, it’s in the downloads folder.
Now it will ask to swipe to install just do it. Hold the big circle in the left corner and swipe it to the right side. (See below screenshot). Don’t check two option as seen in the screenshot.
Wait for few seconds, and it will show you successfully installed. If any error occurred let me know in comments I will help you to solve it.
Then wipe cache and Dalvik cache. There is no need to wipe data or internal storage of the device. In case, you are facing errors then clear data as well.
The final step, reboot your device and enjoy the Boom-Boom sound. Now you have successfully installed fully features Dolby Atmos app.
Now you can adjust the sound from Dolby atmos app. For good bass and clarity, you can optimize the sound. Just keep trying different optimization to find out the best one.
Finally, you have successfully flashed Dolby Digital Atmos. You should use good quality headphones to enjoy the beats.

Hi, so I recently got a new device (a galaxy S8) and didn’t want to root it in order to get the Atmos experience, so I followed your steps for the unrooted way of doing it, but I ran into a problem, I already have the Google Music app since I use the monthly subscription, so I just installed the Dolby app and restarted my device, but I couldn’t get it to work, I made sure to put the equalizer on “Normal” mode since there doesn’t seem to be an option to disable it. Did I do it right? If not, I’d like your assistance on solving this. Thanks in advance.
You have tried the non-root method, the Dolby Atmos apk will increase and improve the sound. However, you can’t adjust or customize the sound like the rooted method. Once disable the Dolby equalizer from google play, then re-enable it and see the difference. If you want that fully featured Dolby Atmos like Lenovo devices then you need to root your Android phone.
It’s not working
Can you elaborate what’s the error you are facing?

Thanks for this great tip Jitender!
I’m using a smartphone called Sugar that came bundled with 2 players: Google’s Play Music and the phone’s stock Music. On Play Music the Dolby activation option in Settings > Equalizer > “Complete actions using… [Dolby]”; on Music it couldn’t be found anywhere save for a window that confirms its activation and I could actually hear a big difference in the sound when playing after installation. Thumbs up man! Keep up the good work!
Your support motivates me to work more and more for the lovely readers like you. Glad you found it useful. 🙂
