Tidal refers to a very well-known subscription-based music, podcast and video streaming service which combines lossless audio and high-definition music videos that includes exclusive content and other attractive features on music. It was launched in the year 2014 by Aspiro which is a Norwegian public company. The service has received mixed reviews from users where a few have appreciated the best fidelity, lossless audio quality and the subscription fees that can result in royalties for artists and songwriters and the negative reception was towards a fact that exclusive content from the artists can lead to more music piracy.
But every service faces bugs at a certain point of time and exactly this has been happening in Tidal. Users have come up with various complaints related to the platform. A few users have said that the app sometimes freezes, crashes, force closes and sometimes, it doesn’t respond at all. It has been a major issue for many users. There are some people who love to play music in offline mode but a few users said that when they tried to listen to the offline music and they opened the app, an error message popped up saying “No Connection – Tap to Refresh”. The users tried to refresh the page but despite having a strong internet connection, the page doesn’t respond at all.
A few users were not able to play any tracks at all. Mostly offline music has been removed from the catalog of many users. If they try to uninstall and then again reinstall the app, they end up losing all downloads. Some users have reported a problem where the media loads very slowly and an error message has also came up when they try to play any track and it says that the track is currently not available on Tidal. People have cleared the app cache and restarted the app to solve the problem but it has not been able to help much. So, if the problems are really irritating you a lot, you can follow these steps to try and fix them yourself –
- Ensure that you are using the latest version of Tidal app.
- Quit the app forcibly and then restart it.
- Play the selected content on another device or at listen.TIDAL.com.
- Try to stream from another platform like YouTube or Netflix and check if the problem still occurs. If it is still there, it indicates an issue with the network or device.
- Try to play the track by using a different network connection.
Remember that if the problem does not happen on another device, then the problem might be with the data connection, setting sand hardware of the original device. If the same does not happen on another network, then it indicates that issue can be with the original network with which you were connected and not with Tidal app.
Completed my graduation in 2019 and at present, my aim is to bring a change the society through my articles. Discrimination still exists despite the mention of “Right to Equality” in the Indian Constitution and I want to change the world to a place where there would be no discrimination of any basis and people of all religions and castes will stay together in peace without engaging in fights with each other.
In short, my aim is to remove discrimination from this world, no matter how much time it takes.
