Livestreaming from your phone without a dedicated mic is usually a lesson in frustration. It’s fine if you’re only recording someone talking, but music tends to sound hollow. The Dolby On app for iOS does an admirable job of taking care of that problem, but Android users were out of luck. Well good news, Dolby On is coming to Android. And iOS users are getting Twitch integration, too.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Dobly On app, it’s fairly straightforward to use. Open your app, point at your subject, and hit record. Dolby does the heavy lifting with automatic EQ and automatic background noise reduction. And surprisingly, on iOS, the app is entirely free. You won’t even find in-app purchases.
The app connects to Facebook so you can set up a live stream as quickly as possible. Now, Dolby is ready to expand that capability to Android and will release the app in the Google Play store today.
And for iOS users, an update arriving today will add Twitch as a streaming location option. You can only stream to one place at a time, but more choices are always better.
We don’t see the app or update in their respective stores yet, but as soon as we do, we’ll update this article with links.
