If your device is running out of storage space, have you ever noticed the Tidal app which may have occupied much storage space on your phone? Perhaps, you’re unaware of it but when you check it, you’ll surprisingly find that it did cache large-sized files. In this case, we suggest you clear Tidal cache to free up your device storage space. Luckily, we offer the guide below to save your efforts.

Without further ado, let’s get a closer look at the detailed tutorial to clear cache Tidal on your mobile and desktop devices. And feel free to get a useful tip to free up Tidal storage with external storage.

Part 1. Why Do We Clear Cache Tidal

Cache files are the temporary files stored in your device as default. Every time you open the app and stream, it stores caches automatically. This benefits us when we want to access the previous listening tracks without costing more time to load since they have already cached the last time we listened to them.

But that makes the cache files too large to save and use off our storage space. Hence, there are a lot of users complained about that and wondered why does Tidal use so much storage. So getting the Tidal cache cleared is necessary to free up the storage. Since the cache files are unnecessary or even useless, so deleting Tidal caches will make no difference to your Tidal streaming.

In addition to the above reason, there are still more factors that push people to clear Tidal cache. For example, large-scale caches are storing too much information, which may contain files that are corrupted. And these corrupted files are to blame when the app malfunctions or Tidal music playback errors appear. Meanwhile, with not enough space, it is more likely to face more issues like buffering, pausing, or something else.

Therefore, you’ll have to clean them up from time to time to ensure a smooth experience. We have illustrated the steps with details below, follow them to clear the cache on Tidal with ease.

Part 4. How to Store Tidal Songs to SD Card/USB Drive

In truth, Tidal uses too much storage principally because of the Tidal downloads. The more Tidal songs or videos downloaded, the more space Tidal took up. So you can try to delete Tidal downloads to free up storage. Given that you are not willing to delete Tidal downloads, using an SD card or USB drive to store your Tidal songs is the best solution.  

But one thing you have to know: like most streaming services, Tidal also applies DRM technology which limits you playing Tidal songs within the Tidal player. Even though you’ve downloaded songs on Tidal, they are unplayable files without the Tidal app, let alone move them to an SD card or USB drive for listening.
