Tidal, which was launched in 2014 by the Norwegian public company Aspiro, is a subscription-based global music streaming platform, bringing over 100 million songs and 350,000 videos to people. Tidal now offers three types of subscriptions: Tidal Free, Tidal HiFi ($10.99 per month), and Tidal HiFi Plus ($19.99 per month). As a Tidal Free user, you can listen to over 100 million songs, enjoy expert-curated playlists in the sound quality up to 160 kbps with no credit card needed.

However, Tidal Free account has its drawbacks. For example, the functions like offline mode and unlimited skips are not available on Tidal Free. Only Tidal HiFi and Tidal HiFi Plus subscribers can download Tidal songs for offline streaming and skip the song that they do not want to listen to without limitation. In addition, even if you are a Tidal HiFi or Tidal HiFi Plus user, you cannot play the downloaded songs and playlists of Tidal on other unauthorized devices or software, such as MP3 player and DJ software. Also, You cannot continue to listen to music on Tidal after the membership expires, including those downloaded songs, because they are all protected.
