HiFi quality streaming service, TIDAL, has announced the availability of a beta desktop application with an updated user interface.
For the US-market only, at first, they have also introduced a ticketing functionality, through Ticketmaster, and student pricing available in the next few weeks.
The beta desktop player is compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems. The idea is to enable TIDAL members to more easily access the full catalogue of over 30 million songs, more than 75,000 videos and exclusive content.
We’ve been using it for the last few days and we have to say it’s a major improvement.
In addition, the player enables members to enjoy gapless play, support for media keys and sound output management. The app detects and supports different audio sources, like Mac Airplay and Digital Audio Converters (DAC), making it easy to play the music on compatible stereo systems. The desktop player can be downloaded at www.tidal.com/download.
TIDAL members will also experience an updated design and functionality for its mobile platform, including: improved search functionality, updated menu and icons, including a prominent “offline mode” button, as well as new personalisation options.
If anyone has tried the new desktop version, other than us, we’d love to read your thoughts in the discussion thread.
