Music streaming service Tidal has announced it is bringing Dolby Atmos Music to Dolby Atmos-enabled devices, such as soundbars, speakers, televisions, and to the Apple TV 4K.
To access this experience, TIDAL HiFi users will need to connect their Dolby Atmos enabled living room devices to a compatible streaming player running the most recently updated TIDAL app. Compatible streaming devices include – Apple TV 4K; various Fire TV models such as Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Cube, Fire TV Stick (2nd gen), Fire TV (3rd gen); and NVIDIA SHIELD TV or NVIDIA SHIELD TV Pro (2019 or newer models). The updated TIDAL app is also available on Dolby Atmos enabled Android TVs from Sony and Philips, which will allow users the option to experience Dolby Atmos Music natively using the Dolby Atmos enabled speakers on the TV or via a connected Dolby Atmos enabled sound bar or home theater system.
Dolby Atmos is a feature that offers listeners more immersive sound for supported devices. The Apple TV 4K supports Atmos content when it is paired with a Dolby Atmos soundbar or receiver and speakers. Apple TV 4K owners will need to update their Tidal app.
Tidal began rolling out Dolby Atmos support back in December for Android smartphones and tablets. The feature is available for all Tidal HiFi subscribers. Tidal HiFi is Tidal’s streaming tier with lossless High Fidelity sound quality and is priced at $19.99 per month.
To find songs in Dolby Atmos, go to the Home screen and look under “Available in Dolby Atmos” or search “Dolby Atmos” to find tracks in Dolby Atmos, including dedicated “At Home” playlists focused on genres like Pop, Hip-Hop, and Jazz.
For new subscribers, Tidal is offering an extended 60-day free trial.
