Tidal continues to revamp its product and its image. The company has now launched a desktop version and student discount option.
Variety reports Tidal users can now access the platform via a Windows and Mac OS X desktop app. The streaming service is also providing users with a valid .edu email address the chance to pay half the price for both the $9.99 tier and premium $19.99 tier.
The new desktop app allows users to stream wireless music to their Apple devices or any AirPlay-capable speaker.
Tidal also gave its mobile apps a design refresh, and added tour dates for musicians to its service. The latter comes courtesy of a partnership with Ticketmaster, which will also allow users to purchase tickets.
So far Tidal has been on the look to show its differences from its competitors by closely partnering with Music A-List like Beyoncé, Rihanna and Jay-Z, who acquired Tidal’s parent company in March. Reports has it that Drake was supposed to join fellow musicians for Tidal’s launch earlier this year. But he reportedly dropped out of the lineup two days before the launch because Apple offered him a better deal. Hmm what a competition!
