Part 1. Features You Can Get on Plex Tidal Integration

As a matter of fact, users can stream Tidal songs on Plex. You just need to log in to your Tidal account or sign up for a new account on Plex. There are two services Plex provides: Plex + Tidal HiFi bundles ($10.99 per month) and Plex Pass + Tidal HiFi Plus bundles ($19.99 per month). They both offer a 30-day free trial. Here you will get features about these two bundles.

Tidal HiFi + Plex

When you get this plan, you still can enjoy high-quality songs, like FLAC and ALAC with a bitrate of 1411Kbps on Plex. Besides, several Tidal music features, such as gapless playback, loudness leveling, recommendations & discovery, sweet fades, etc. are all provided on Plex as well.

Plex Pass + Tidal HiFi Plus

In this plan, you can get all the features that are included in Tidal HiFi + Plex. Additionally, you can sync your videos, music, and photos to your mobile device for offline enjoyment. What is more, you are able to activate parental controls for a kid-friendly experience or establish separate accounts for your younger household members.

Nevertheless, you still cannot use some Tidal features from the official Tidal app even though you pay for Tidal Plex bundles. Subscribers on Plex cannot access these features:

❌ You have no right to purchase the Tidal songs on Plex.

❌ You can not download songs from Tidal in "Tidal Offline Mode".

❌ The Tidal HiFi plan doesn't provide Tidal MQA music on Plex, whether subscribed through Tidal or Plex.

To enjoy Plex Tidal MQA songs, you can use the DRmare Tidal Music Converter we talk about in the next part to help download Tidal MQA files.
