Tidal has always been a requested music service for Sonos speakers, now it's there, and its good. With Tidal on your Sonos speaker, you can access your music collection with your curated playlists and more from Tidal's vast music library and edit them anytime you want. What you need is your Tidal subscription account for HiFi or HiFi Plus, then you can add Tidal to Sonos easily.

Here we're going to show how Tidal users can add Tidal to Sonos on a computer or smartphone, alongside with an alternative way for non-members to upload Tidal to Sonos.

Part 1. How to Add Tidal to Sonos

Before getting started, ensure that both the supported device such as your smartphone or computer and your Sonos speaker is well prepared for a set up. For starters, plug in your Sonos speaker into a power source and turned on. Then, connect your supported device is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as Sonos. After that, download and install the Sonos app to the supported device. Once you're set up, follow these steps on your smartphone or computer to add Tidal to your Sonos speaker for streaming.

For smartphone:

  1. Go to App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android) to download and install the Sonos app, and launch it on your device.
  2. From the Settings tab, tap Services & Video.
  3. Under Music & Content, tap Add a Service. From there you will access a list of available music services.
  4. Tap Tidal.
  5. Tap Add to Sonos.
  6. Follow any steps on the screen to log in to your Tidal account to link it to your Sonos speaker.

For computer:

  1. Go to Sonos' official website to download the latest version of the Sonos app, and launch it on your device.
  2. Under the Select a Music Source section, click on Add Music Services. You should see Tidal alongside with other available music services, such as Spotify, Apple Music, and more.
  3. Click on Tidal.
  4. To continue to add Tidal to Sonos, follow the on-screen instructions.

Part 2. How to Play Tidal on Sonos with Subscriptions

Once you added Tidal to Sonos, you will be redirected to the Sonos app. From there you are able to browse through your music collection in the Sonos app to access and stream new and old favorites with news, recommendations, curated playlists, moods, and genres. Meanwhile, you can create and edit your own playlists, and put a star on all your favorite Tidal contents, including artists, albums, tracks, or playlists.

Q1.What is the streaming quality that Sonos plays?

A1.Sonos plays Tidal contents all with High Fidelity (HiFi).

  3. Under the Music & Content section, select Tidal.
  4. You can access your music collection there on Sonos. You can play playlists and others to your speaker, or search for what you want to listen to from your Sonos Controller.

    When you searching Tidal content, partial search is ineffective at this time, meaning you have to type the entire word or artist name, or results may not appear.

Please noted that you can only stream to one Sonos household at a time, but to as many players or grouped players as you wish. This means you can connect Tidal to multiple Sonos speakers to enjoy your music.
