How to Play Tidal Music Offline on Desktop

"How can I play Tidal music offline on desktop? I can use Tidal mobile app to play music offline, but I need the offline mode for desktop! It seems that Tidal does not support such a function? Any ideas on how to do it?"

Compared with other music streaming platforms, the advantage of Tidal is that it offers users music in HiFi quality and even better. The three types of subscriptions, including Tidal Free, Tidal HiFi ($9.99 per month), and Tidal HiFi Plus ($19.99 per month), can meet the needs of most of the users. People who are seeking higher audio quality will prefer to purchase Tidal HiFi and HiFi Plus.

Just as other music streaming platforms, Tidal allows paid HiFi and HiFi Plus users to play Tidal music offline. However, whether you're a paid Tidal HiFi or HiFi Plus subscriber, you can only play Tidal music offline on mobile phones and tablet devices, and the Windows/macOS desktop version does not support the offline downloading function. Many users are complaining about it, and some of them even sent emails to Tidal, hoping to add such a function on the Tidal Windows/macOS desktop version. However, it seems that Tidal does not have the plan of adding the offline playing function on desktop. Is there any way to let Tidal users play Tidal music offline on desktop?

In fact, if users want to play Tidal music offline on desktop, one of the methods is to use a third-party tool to download Tidal music files as local files. Here we can recommend you a tool called Tidal Music Converter to help you. Just read on.
