How to Add Tidal Music to iTunes Library

"I purchased some albums from Tidal and want to add them to my iTunes library but I failed. Does anyone know how to transfer Tidal music to iTunes?"

People who have extremely high requirements for music sound quality may be familiar with Tidal, the best music streaming service in the market that provides lossless audio quality. Tidal offers over 80 million songs with different audio quality. The free tier allows to connect to the whole music library but at only 160kbps audio quality in AAC format. If you subscribe to Tidal HiFi, you can stream music with Hi-Fidelity sound quality. But many people love its top plan. That’s the HiFi Plus subscription, which can get one by paying $19.99 per month. The users can get Master Quality audio (up to 9216 Kbps) with this type of account.

However, no matter which subscription plan you choose, Tidal music is limited to be played using the Tidal app, and Tidal disallows you to move its media contents to other streaming services, like iTunes. Although Tidal music can be downloaded, what you get is a cache file. Therefore, you will get nothing on iTunes when you attempt to add the downloaded Tidal music to your iTunes library. To deal with it, the key point is how to get real audio files from Tidal. Don’t worry; this article will provide you with the most practical solution to add Tidal music to the iTunes library.
