Recently, a group of people are asking questions like: Is Tidal compatible with Alexa? How can we play Tidal on Alexa?

Part 2 How to Play Tidal on Alexa with Premium – Official Method

How to Setup Tidal Alexa the First Time

If you haven’t connected Tidal to Alexa, here’s the how-to guide:

1# Download and launch the Amazon Alexa App on your phone.

2# Go to “Settings” and tap “Music”.

3# Under the “Music” section, tap “Link New Service” > “TIDAL” to add Tidal music service.

4# Click “Enable to Use” and link your TIDAL account.

Now you have set up Tidal for Alexa, it’s easy to control your music playback through your mobile phone or by making voice commands to the home assistant.

How to Use Alexa Voice Commands to Control Playback

As long as you have added Tidal to your Alexa playing services, you can easily stream Tidal Music on Amazon Alexa devices. Call out a song, album, or playlist you want to listen to and make voice commands to Alexa, by saying ” Alexa, play [XX] on/from Tidal”. When you request a song or album that has multiple writers, the best way to tell Alexa is to say just one writer like “Alexa, play XX from XX”. That’s enough, otherwise, your Alexa assistant may be puzzled and confused to respond to your requests.

In addition to asking Alexa to play songs, you can control the Tidal Music playback on Alexa with ease. You can shuffle songs, play next or previous songs, pause or skip songs and adjust the volume, etc.

How to Set Tidal As Default Music Services

If you don’t want to always make commands to Alexa by saying “…… on/from Tidal”, there is a method to delete the redundant procedure. You can fix this by setting Tidal as the default music service on Tidal, so you don’t have to make clear the music source every time when you want to hear a song from Tidal.

1# Open the Amazon Alexa app and click on Menu.

2# Go to Settings and select Music.

3# Tap Choose default music services.

4# Select Tidal from the available service list.

After then, you can play Tidal on Amazon Echo with no need to say “on/from Tidal” once and once again.
