Variety reports Tidal users can now access the platform via a Windows and Mac OS X desktop app. The streaming service is also providing users with a valid .edu email address the chance to pay half the price for both the $9.99 tier and premium $19.99 tier.
While Tidal is in a very public battle with Apple for consumers and artist involvement, the new desktop app allows users to wirelessly stream music to their Apple devices or any AirPlay-capable speaker. It provides seamless playback capability as well.
Tidal has also partnered with Ticketmaster to allow users to purchase tickets for musicians’ upcoming tours. Fans will be able to buy the tickets directly from the Tidal site.
Part owners Jay Z, J. Cole, and Jack White have all lived stream concerts via Tidal over the last few months. Musical icon Prince also streamed his Baltimore show on Tidal. The service previously announced its Tidal X: Discovery program will include a series of nationwide concerts featuring up-and-coming artists.
