Tidal And Dolby Partner For Atmos Music

Tidal, the music streaming platform, has teamed with Dolby Labs to bring Dolby Atmos to Tidal’s premium Hi-Fi music tier.

Members subscribing to the Tidal HiFi tier with compatible Android smartphones or tablets have access to a growing library of music available in Dolby Atmos from Universal Music Group and Warner Music Group.

The current library includes songs from some of the world’s biggest artists including The Weeknd, Blondie and Ariana Grande. 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.

To use Dolby Atmos Music, Tidal will automatically default to this experience if a Dolby Atmos mix 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 scan the library of tracks available in Dolby Atmos.
