Global music and entertainment streaming platform, TIDAL, and Dolby Laboratories, a leader in immersive entertainment technology, are bringing Dolby Atmos Music to the comfort of your home. Rolling out over the next few days, music lovers can now enjoy this next-level immersive audio experience through Dolby Atmos enabled sound bars, TVs, and AVR home theater systems.


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 (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.


Since its launch in December, TIDAL’s library of music in Dolby Atmos continues to expand in size, and now features recently acclaimed albums and songs including Ariana Grande’s 7 rings, The Weeknd’s After Hours, and Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello’s Señorita.


Dolby Atmos Music allows people to connect with their favorite music in a whole new way, pulling listeners into a song and revealing what was lost with stereo recordings. Listeners can discover hidden details and subtleties with unparalleled clarity. Whether it’s a complex harmony of instruments placed around a listener, a legendary guitar solo that fills a room, a massive bass drop that washes over the audience, or the subtle breath a singer takes between lyrics, Dolby Atmos gives music more space and the freedom to unleash every detail and emotion as the artist intended.


To make it easy to enjoy Dolby Atmos Music, TIDAL HiFi will automatically default to this experience if a Dolby Atmos mix and compatible device are available. 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. Dolby Atmos Music is available to TIDAL members subscribing to the HiFi tier, which already features HiFi and Master quality audio. Users can also experience Dolby Atmos Music on TIDAL HiFi through a compatible Dolby Atmos enabled Android smartphone or tablet.


TIDAL is offering a special extended 60-day free trial to those interested in Dolby Atmos Music. This is a limited time offer for new subscribers. More details can be found here.
