A TIDAL HiFi Plus membership supports additional, innovative sound formats:
Tidal HiFi allows you to stream audio using the lossless format FLAC in 1411 kbps, creating a crisp and robust music streaming experience. You can also download HiFi music for offline playback on mobile devices. Same as other music streaming services, Tidal songs are not available for download to local files. Once you cancel Tidal subscription, the downloaded FLAC songs also disappear.
Tidal songs are only accessible within the Tidal app. It isn't possible to export titles for use on other apps and devices. You can't copy them onto CDs and other external storage.
If you want to download Tidal songs to store them locally or to import them to another media player, like iTunes or Windows Media Player, you will need a professional Tidal Music Converter - Pazu Tidal Music Converter . To keep the lossless music quality, it allows you to convert Tidal music to FLAC format.
FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, and it’s a digital audio file format like MP3, but with a major, important difference: it is a lossless file type—meaning that no audio data is discarded during the encoding process. This results in significantly larger files than MP3.
