Tidal brings its desktop music streaming app to the Microsoft Store

Tidal isn't exactly the biggest service in the music streaming game, but it has its fair share fans. And if you count yourself among that lot, you can now get your hands on the app directly from the Microsoft Store.

Tidals has had a desktop app for Windows available for some time, but it's now packaged up and ready for download on the Microsoft Store (opens in new tab) for Windows 10. Apart from an unofficial app that has since been pulled, this marks Tidals first foray into Microsoft's storefront.

If you're familiar with the standard desktop app, then you'll already know much of what to expect here. Subscribers can stream millions of tracks, and Tidal's main selling point, high-fidelity and master quality audio, are both available. The service's bevy of curated playlists and podcasts are also on board, and it's all ad-free.

If you want to give Tidal a shot, you can grab the app from the Microsoft Store now on your Windows 10 PC.

  • When will Cortana support additional music services?
  • That's a good question.
  • More like, when will Cortana be able to play your music that is in Groove/OneDrive again? You would think their "Cloud services" would be linked but nooo. That makes way too much sense. My Invoke would be better if I could access the music I have in Groove that is categorized by playlist, artist, album, etc. Already on the Spotify train but Spotify can't play OneDrive content. I thought that would have been one of the key features coming out of this "partnership".
  • I would like to see it available for xbox
  • Lossless music is the way to go, Tidal isn't for me though, not my kind of music. I'll stick to 7 Digital and Bandcamp
  • Actually Tidal has a huge library - ignore the Billboard 100 crap they promote in their apps. You'd be surprised what you can find (but of course as with the other streaming services there will be gaps...).
  • I need an Xbox version
  • Finally! Great news. Plus, it supports not only CD-quality but studio masters (if you're into that and you have the equipment). Note that like the regular desktop version and the Android app, it does not support UPNP renderers. I use BubbleUPNP for most of my Tidal music playback and, on occasion, Stream What You Hear.
  • Gave it a try, but I think I'll stay with Deezer. Anyway, this is a welcome addition to the store 😃
  • No South African playlists, so it's a no from me dawg.
