Where Are Tidal Music Downloads Stored?
"I've used Tidal for a while, but I never know where they are stored. I need to locate them and play them under the offline mode, where should I check?
Offline playback of the Tidal songs is the most important why some users subscribe to Tidal. Tidal Music offers an offline mode by caching songs in advance and then the downloaded songs can be played without data. When you are going to relish the offline playback, you are not sure which songs are downloaded and available for offline listening. In this post, we will lead you to find where the downloaded Tidal songs are stored and how to download the songs, albums, and playlists from Tidal Music as local files to store them forever.
Part 1. Where Are Tidal Music Downloads Stored?
Tidal music is not supported to be downloaded on the desktop computer. Therefore, you should find the Tidal downloads on your Android phone or iPhone.
Step 1: Start the mobile Tidal Music app on your phone.
Step 2: Press on "My Collection". Under this column, tap on "Downloaded" to find your music.
Step 3: Here the downloaded Tidal albums and playlists are available to play offline.
Step 4: If you need to play the downloaded Tidal songs under an offline mode, go to "My Collection" and click on the "gear" icon. Then turn on the offline mode. You can go back and play the downloaded Tidal albums or playlists without using data under the "Downloaded" column.
