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 70 million ad-free songs with standard sound quality and Hi-Fidelity sound quality. If you subscribe to Tidal Premium, you can stream music with standard sound quality, which is the same as the music you get from iTunes or Apple Music. But most users are more likely to order Tidal HiFi to access lossless CD quality, even the High-Res quality, called Master.

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 iTunes library.
