Tidal Streaming Service Announces Apple CarPlay Support
Dec 7, 2017 2:39 am PST by Tim Hardwick
Music streaming service Tidal on Wednesday announced its compatibility with Apple CarPlay, enabling subscribers to stream music through their vehicle's dash-integrated infotainment systems.

The support comes via an iOS app update, which also includes interface harmonization with iPhone X screens, ensuring Tidal's default dark theme makes the most of those 5.8-inch OLED displays.



The My Collection section of the app is the hub of Tidal's CarPlay integration, where listeners can gain access to their favorited tracks, albums, and playlists.

As noted by The Verge, a special version of the Explore section will also let users find new music and podcasts, including the most played versions of both.

The update follows Tidal's announcement last month that it was providing in-app support for Sonos speaker systems, allowing subscribers to control their Sonos home sound systems directly from within the Tidal interface.

Yeah exactly! That is the one app I want on Car play. Until then I don't have much benefit in using it.

CarPlay without Waze and Gmaps nav options is like a bicycle without wheels.

Interesting. This certainly is intriguing. can someone here comment on how Tidal works? Can I download the high-resolution files to my iPhone locally? I don't even have 3G where I live so I'm stuck playing songs I've downloaded to my device through carPlay or Overcast podcasts.

I want Tidal for the better quality files but if I can't stream Apple music, there's no way I can stream tidal. Is there a limit to how much I can store offline?
