Tidal has added a new feature that will let you automatically add albums to your library as soon as they are released. The new “pre-save” feature will allow Tidal users to add albums to their collections as soon as they are uploaded to Tidal’s service ahead of the release date.
Spotify has a similar feature, but it’s seemingly only used in marketing campaigns by artists and labels, and you need a direct link to the album to use it. Tidal is launching the new feature alongside Deadmau5’s new album, which can be pre-saved now and will be officially released next week.
TIDAL doesn’t have many fans due to its high pricing and general impracticality, but perhaps today’s two additions will sway you to reconsider. Jay-Z’s music service now supports Amazon Fire TV and Android Auto — an odd combo, but any additional support is good to hear about.
When last we heard in December, Norwegian publication Dagens Næringsliv reported that music streaming service Tidal had enough cash to last about six months. But the company is evidently still around and has more to announce: Tidal now has a ne… Engadget RSS Feed
Good news, Tidal users: your music streaming service of choice is now available in more places.
Tidal announced today that its app is now live on Amazon Fire TV. On the home screen of Amazon’s streaming device, you’ll be able to access new Tidal content, video playlists, and content like concerts and podcasts. Also available in the app is a My Collection section to house your favorite content as well as access to Tidal’s full library of more than 50 million tracks and Tidal original content.
Also of note is that Tidal is now compatible with Android Auto. If you’ve got Tidal and a device running Android 5.0 or higher, you can connect your phone to your car and control Tidal playback through your car dashboard. Just be sure you have the Tidal app for Android on your smartphone.
Tidal may not be the most popular streaming service out there, but it does have a sizable customer base, and it’s good that those users can now access Tidal in more places. If you’re a Tidal subscriber and you use a Fire TV or Android Auto device, go give your new Tidal app a try.
Jay-Z’s high-fidelity music streaming service Tidal is offering a 12-day free trial starting on December 25th. In comparison to normal trials—in which the start and end dates are determined per subscriber—the Tidal trial starts and ends for everyone on December 25th and January 5th, respectively. No credit card is required for the trial, so you can partake without worrying about an unexpected bill. The trial includes access to the premium tier, as well as the lossless Hi-Fi tier.
Tidal is giving the gift of free music for the holidays.
Tidal has announced that it’s offering a 12 free days of music streaming. From December 25, 2017 through January 5, 2018, you can stream unlimited music from Tidal without paying anything. You’ll just need to use your email address.
During this 12-day preview period, you’ll have full access to Tidal’s service, including its Hi-Fi and Premium service. Tidal’s mobile and desktop apps will be available, too.
Also available during this preview period will be exclusive content releases like exclusive New Year’s Eve playlists from Franz Ferdinand and a Rae Sremmurd “Sremm Holiday” documentary. There will be ticket giveaways during the preview period, too.
Tidal normally costs $ 9.99 for the standard music streaming service or $ 19.99 for the lossless Hi-Fi music streaming. This 12-day preview period is a good way to try out both services, especially the Hi-Fi one, and see if you like Tidal’s music streaming offering.
If you are someone who would pay 20 bucks a month for lossless streaming audio, you would probably like the option to play those high-bitrate tunes through the receiver connected to the biggest screen in your house. It’s only fair. Rejoice, audiophiles and audiophile wannabes (like me), because streaming service Tidal has released an Android TV version of its app.
Tidal also leans heavily on providing high-resolution music videos as well as audio, and boasts in its Play Store listing that users can now “stream exclusive music videos and concerts in stunning HD.” Sounds nice, so it’s a little surprising, given the emphasis on video, that the TV app is only appearing now.
Today, Tidal launches its Tidal TV app, allowing subscribers to use the streaming service on their Apple TVs and Android TVs. The app's "Home" section displays recommendations and popular concerts, livestreams, music videos, albums and podcasts. And… Engadget RSS Feed
