Entirely two separate things. 

Yeah, and I'm fascinated that they have a catalog of songs in that quality but to enjoy that particular quality you need a good home entertainment setup to immerse yourself in that type of sound.

This is FULLY a different mix of the album with different vocal takes at times or cut ones in some places - not just mastering in 5.1

The Dolby Atmos version of Chromatica is so messy and low quality.  Yes you can hear some vocals better but the other stems all jump around in volume  This has gotta be fixed ASAP

Updating my iPhone as oui speak. I didn't see Dolby Atmos so, hopefully it'll show up on iOS14.6.

It's easier to think of them as two separate things. They actually don't have that many in that quality I think. Apple said on rollout more albums will offer lossless than dolby, with them trying to get a majority of the library to lossless by this fall if I'm remembering correctly. They never said if the same goal will be met with Dolby, as I expect they will only focus on new albums for that.

You'll need to be updated to the newest version, but the apple music update is dependent upon their servers unfortunately. That's why people will be getting it randomly.

That's not what Dolby Atmos is. Even your article doesn't say what you are implying. Dolby Atmos is not lossless audio.

You have to have a certain type of speaker for Dolby Atmos. 

You are getting lossless which is an incredible difference in sound quality close to or on par with CD quality. Dolby Atmos is for home entertainment not airpods or phones. 

You’re absolutely correct. I was doing more research on it and you’re right. I let the name on my phone make me believe it was as it said but I think they’re using it as a sly way to get people to subscribe to their service. Especially utilizing the “spatial audio” to change little things in the music.

If anything I’m more mad than they didn’t put the whole of Gaga’s catalogue in the “atmos” format. Only Chromatica from what I’ve seen so far.

Update complete and I have Dolby Atmos/Lossless audio on Chromatica. IT SOUNDS SO GOOD. The album sounds so different and brand new.

I don't see Dolby Atmos on any. All albums except Chemtrails Over The Country Club and Born To Die have lossless audio. Born To Die has "Hi Res Lossless", whatever that means.

Wow it sounds different. I feel like I am hearing new sounds and voices. Or like they brought them out more in the songs. 
 

update: when Ariana soft sings rain on me it sounds creepy like it’s coming from behind me on sides

Apple Music’s new  Dolby Atmos setting is compatible with AirPods and Beats headphones with an H1 or W1 chip, as well as the built-in speakers in the latest versions of iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

Literally impossible to get Dolby Atmos on a phone. 

Dobly Atmos is about speaker placement inside a speaker box. You can't even get it at home unless you buy speakers that are Dolby Atmos compatible. I don't even think the Homepod is Dolby Atmos compatible.

Entirely two separate things. If the OP is hearing new mixes of Chromatica, then it is what Apple is calling Dolby Atmos spatial audio.
