Streaming music service Tidal has launched a desktop music app, currently in beta for both Microsoft Windows and Mac. Curious music listeners can take Tidal for a spin with a one month trial of two different subscription plans.
The app allows subscribers to search through 30 million songs, but they are unable to browse the high-quality video library. In addition, there is no gapless playback, but the company is expected to alter how its mobile and desktop apps operate.
Students will also receive a discount, and instead of paying $10 or $20 per month, anyone with a .edu email address pay $5 or $10 per month.
Jay-Z wants Tidal to overcome Spotify's dominance in streaming music, but the journey clearly isn't an easy one for the rap mogul. Tidal faces intense competition and many music fans simply aren't onboard with the music service - and trying to change our minds will be extremely difficult.
