HBO Max confirms the details of how you can watch Wonder Woman 1984 on the new Chromecast with Google TV, both before being released in theaters and streaming tomorrow. Unfortunately, this is not supported by Dolby Atmos.
Google’s latest streaming stick is a solid option We appreciated its price And useful interface, on top of that it supports most streaming formats for 4K and HDR. It includes Dolby Atmos, but unfortunately the HBO Max does not have that audio format support on Chromecast with Google TV.
A Support page, HBO Max fully describes how and where to view Wonder Woman 1984 in 4K HDR, and includes the new Chromecast and Google’s Chromecast Ultra with Google TV. Beyond that, Android TVs, select Fire TVs, Apple TV 4K and efficient Rogus can stream with Dolby Vision and HDR10 as long as your TV supports it.
The HBO Max application added support for 4K HDR In its latest application update, But HBO specifically states that Chromecast does not support Dolby Atmos with Google TV, the device automatically supports that audio quality with other applications. HBO did not specify a reason for the lack of support, it was odd Only It’s not in Google’s streamer.
Wonder Woman 1984 will be the first title on the HBO Max available in 4K Ultra HD, HDR10, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. 4K HDR viewing experience is available on selected 4K devices. Wonder Woman 1984 is all available in HD Supported devices.

The lack of Dolby Atmos on the new Chromecast is a shame, but we’re glad the 4K HDR is still available. We hope HBO Max solves any problems before other major releases of the operating system are introduced this year.
