Music streaming service Tidal has announced that it is launching its app on Samsung Wearable devices, which include the latest Galaxy Watch, Gear Sport, Gear S3, Gear S2, and fitness bands including Gear Fit2 Pro and Gear Fit2. This is Tidal’s first app for wearables.
In the app, a “Main Menu” screen will be the jump-off point for users to access their music collection. Within that is an “Explore” section for serving up editorial content and searching through Tidal’s catalog and playlists. The “My Collection” screen shows users their favorite content. Users will be able to download content to revisit when offline, and Tidal is highlighting this in combination with its workout playlists to appeal to fitness-minded Samsung Wearable owners.
Samsung also recently announced a long-term partnership with Spotify, which sees the app included as part of the setup experience on Samsung devices. There are also plans for Spotify and Samsung accounts to eventually link for smart home integration with Samsung’s SmartThings app.
The Tidal app is now available on all current-generation Samsung Wearable devices and Samsung Smart TVs that are 2017 models or newer. The company is also pointing out that it has more integrations with wearables to come.
