A dedicated Apple Music user and well-known former Microsoft technology evangelist, Robert Scoble (@Scobleizer), has created what is probably the largest collection of Dolby Atmos-supported songs on Apple Music.
Scoble’s playlist includes over 30,000 tracks mastered for Dolby Atmos and available on Apple Music. He also shared a smaller 91-track playlist that he says consists of the “best of the best” songs with Spatial Audio on Apple Music.
He was responding to 9to5Mac’s ask what is the best song with Spatial Audio on Apple Music. Scoble replied, “I have the biggest Dolby Atmos collection in the world” and shared his link to his curated Apple Music playlist.

Apple launched Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos, as well as Lossless Audio, for Apple Music in June 2021. Spatial Audio leverages Dolby Atmos to deliver an immersive surround sound-like experience to the listener.
Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of services, said at the feature’s launch last year that it represents the future of music.
To listen to Spatial Audio and Dolby Atmos in Apple Music on iPhone or iPad, you’ll need iOS 14.6 (or later) and one of the following:
- AirPods Pro or AirPods Max.
- BeatsX, Beats Solo3 Wireless, Beats Studio3, Powerbeats3 Wireless, Beats Flex, Powerbeats Pro or Beats Solo Pro.
- Built-in speakers on iPhone XR or later (except iPhone SE), 12.9-inch iPad Pro (3rd generation or later), 11-inch iPad Pro, iPad (6th generation or later), iPad Air (3rd generation or later) ) ) or iPad mini (5th generation).
You can enable Spatial Audio on your iPhone or iPad by going to Settings > Music > audio > Dolby Atmos and selecting Automatique Where Always on.
Judging by Scoble’s playlist, Apple Music has over 30,000 Spatial Audio-enabled songs, and new ones are added regularly.
Apple Music launched DJ Mixes in Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos in April, bringing listeners “multidimensional sound and clarity.”
