Tidal announces integrations with Amazon Echo, Samsung Wearables collections

Tidal has made its streaming entertainment accessible on two new platforms. First, the company announced that Tidal is supported on all Amazon Echo devices. Tidal used Amazon’s Music Skill API, launched earlier this year, to complete the integration. Subscribers can use voice commands to access playlists, listen to specific tracks, and control playback on an Echo.

“As the first streaming service to leverage Amazon’s new self-service Music Skill API, Tidal is always committed to finding new ways for subscribers to easily access the platform,” Tidal COO Lior Tibon said. “Alexa provides a convenient, hands-free listening experience, which we’re sure our members will enjoy.”

The second integration brings Tidal to Samsung Wearables. This move brings a custom interface designed for use on Samsung’s smartwatches and fitness trackers. The integration includes the latest Galaxy Watch, Gear Sport, Gear S3, and Gear S2. Any new Tidal users can get a three-month free trial when they sign up through their Samsung device.

“Our continued partnership with Samsung allows users to have a best-in-class streaming experience across all devices,” said Tibon. “Each device’s interface is customized with accessibility and ease of use, and we know TIDAL will seamlessly integrate into user’s everyday lives.”
