If you own an Amazon Echo device, you will want to set it up with your favorite music streaming service. Now your Amazon Echo device can play almost any song from most popular options (for example: Spotify), you just need to tell it which service to use - now including Tidal, completely ad-free.

Linking Tidal to Alexa to play music from Tidal's streaming catalog will require an active subscription to either Tidal HiFi or HiFi Plus. There we introduce two best ways for all Tidal users to play the desired music on Alexa. Let's get started!

Part 1. How to Link Tidal to Amazon Echo

With your Tidal subscription and the Tidal skill for Alexa, it's easier than ever to set up Tidal with Alexa. For starters, you will need to download and install the Alexa app to your smartphone or tablet. Then, you'll need to link your Tidal account to enable Tidal on Alexa.


    Currently TIDAL is only available in the United States on Alexa. That means you need an U.S. account on Amazon.

Linking Tidal to Alexa:

Step 4. Select Tidal from the list of available music services.

Step 5. Select Enable to Use.

Part 2. How to Play Tidal on Amazon Echo

Once you linked your Tidal account to Alexa, feel free to play what you want to listen to from your music collection or Tidal's vast music library.

Command Alexa to Play Tidal Music:

Once you linked your Tidal account to Alexa, you can command Alexa to play what you'd like to listen to or control the playback easily. You can say "Alexa, play [song/album/artist/playlist] on/from Tidal" or similar. If you don't want to say "on/from Tidal" each time you command Alexa to play Tidal contents, you're highly recommended to set Tidal as your default music service on Alexa.

However, please noted that the voice command should be used appropriately when requesting a Tidal content, including those mentioned about, or you won't receive an accurate result.


  • Alexa, play playlist <playlist name> on/from Tidal.
  • Alexa, play album <album name> on/from Tidal.
  • Alexa, play <track name> by <artist name> on/from Tidal.

Set Tidal as Default Music Service:

Another workaround for non-members would be uploading your Tidal music collection to Alexa for playing.
