New York and San Francisco (December 12, 2019)—Subscribers to streaming platform Tidal’s HiFi tier with compatible Android smartphones or tablets now have access to a growing library of music available in Dolby Atmos from Warner Music Group and Universal Music Group .
The current library includes songs from some of the world’s biggest artists such as The Weeknd, Blondie, Ariana Grande and more. Tidal is working closely with its artist-owners, including JAY-Z, to mix their catalogs in Dolby Atmos, which are expected to become available in 2020.
Tidal will automatically default to a Dolby Atmos mix if it is available. Tracks will be identified by a “Dolby logo” visual badge as well as through a “Dolby Atmos” identifier that will display once a song is selected.
Users can also click on the “Dolby Atmos” menu option under the “Explore” tab on the Tidal app to explore the library of tracks available in Dolby Atmos.
“Tidal members have come to expect the highest quality listening experience from our platform, and it is a priority for us to stay at the forefront of innovation,” said Lior Tibon, COO, Tidal. “Dolby Atmos will give music fans the ability to enjoy the best possible audio quality.”
“Dolby Atmos is redefining how music is created, allowing artists and fans to experience it like never before,” said John Couling, senior vice president, commercial partnerships, Dolby Laboratories. “Together with Tidal, we are expanding the reach of Dolby Atmos Music by enabling a more immersive way for people around the world to enjoy their favorite songs and albums.”
Dolby Atmos is now available to Tidal members subscribing to the HiFi tier, which already features HiFi and Master quality audio.
