Music Service Tidal Now Supports Google Cast

With most music services today, users are streaming mp3 files. These are compressed audio files which are optimal for streaming because of their smaller file size, but there are a group of individuals who may prefer higher quality audio files. The music service Tidal differentiates itself by streaming high-fidelity, lossless audio.

You can stream audio to your phone or through the web, but there hasn’t been a good way to play audio from your TV. If you have hi-fi audio, you probably want to play it on the best speakers in your house. For those that have a home theater, the highest quality speakers may be connected to your TV. Tidal now supports Google Cast, allowing you to play music through your TV and experience music in the best way possible.

WHAT’S NEW

1.11.0
You can now stream music and videos directly to your Chromecast device!
– Chromecast Support
– Play Queue Improvements
– Bug Fixes

The hi-fi plan costs $20/month, which may be more than some people want, but it’s worth it if you’re looking for better quality audio than what you’d get from other services. You can alternatively go with a lower quality $10/month plan.
