"Is it possible to add/link Tidal subscription to Google Home? So to be able to use the voice assistants on the home or mini. I have a few of these speakers in my house and the kids+wife love playing music via them. So it would be useful if I could link my tidal account to it. I know this works for Spotify!!"

It’s quite easy to stream Spotify and YouTube Music on Google Home, as Google Home has support for many popular music streaming services, including Spotify, YouTube Music, Pandora, Deezer, and more. But, what if you want to play Tidal Music on your Google Home? That can be a different story.

Why? Because Google Home doesn’t make it easy for you to do so. You’ll have to rely on some methods to stream Tidal music on Google Home.

Stream Tidal Music on Google Home

Method 1: How to Link Tidal Music to Google Home with Google Cast

Tidal allows subscriber users to cast both audio and video to a Google Chromecast connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your device, so we can stream and control music to Chromecast-enabled devices within the app. Not only does it to support the service's CD-quality playback, but it can also uniquely cast the hi-res Masters (MQA) tracks and Dolby Atmos Music catalog available to Tidal HiFi subscribers.

Notice: If you are using a computer, you have to use the Chrome browser and open the Tidal Web Player.

1) Open Tidal for Android or iPhone and make sure your phone is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the Google Cast device you'd like to play media on.

2) Select a song you want to listen to and tap on it to begin playback.

3) Once the song starts playing, the basic media controls will appear on the lower left corner of your screen.

4) Press this icon to bring up the Google Cast sub-menu, which will provide a list of all Chromecast, Chromecast Audio, and Google Cast devices (including Google Home, Home Mini, and Home Max) that are currently connected to the same Wi-Fi as your phone.

5) Just choose your Google Home that you would like to play the music, wait for it to connect in a few seconds and you will hear the audio play out of the Google Cast device.

6) Once connected, you can use your phone as a remote control or just control Chromecast-enabled apps using voice commands.

Now. you can enjoy your favorite Tidal music on Google Home. Try asking Google to play your favorite artists, songs, and playlists by saying:

  • “Play pop music”, or “Play classical music”, or “Play happy music”
  • “Pause.” or “Pause the music”
  • “Resume” or “Continue playing”
  • “Like this song.”
  • “Next” or “Skip” or “Next song”
  • “What’s playing?”, “What song is playing?”, or “What artist is playing?”

Method 2: How to Download and Play Tidal Music on Google Home

As mentioned above, Google Home doesn’t support playing Tidal music directly, So if we haven't a strong Wi-Fi or Tidal subscription, we can’t stream Tidal music on Google Home with Google Cast. In these cases, the second method would be very helpful. As Sidify Tidal Music Converter would help you download and convert your songs from Tidal in plain audio format in just a few simple steps. After downloading music with Sidify, you can play Tidal music offline, transfer Tidal music to other devices and even share it with your friends.

Sidify Tidal Music Converter is specially designed for both Tidal Premium and HiFi subscribers to record tracks from Tidal and save them in plain MP3, AAC, FLAC, WAV, AIFF or ALAC format, retaining the best audio quality and ID3 tags after conversion.

For example, you can select a light or a dark theme as your default interface style. And in the Sidify Tidal Music Converter setting window, you can choose how you'd like the output files to be organized - "Artist/Album", "Artist", "Album", "Album/ Artist" or "None". One of the ultimate features for HiFi subscribers is that it will result in HiFi audio quality, which is sound identical to the original source.

Read on, we are going to guide you on how you can record Tidal Music to MP3 for streaming on Google Home.
