Der Streaming-Dienst Tidal, bei dem auch Rap-Superstar Jay-Z seine Finger im Spiel hat, läuft nicht so gut im hart umkämpften Musikmarkt. Die Konkurrenz wie Spotify, Apple Music und Amazon ist stark. Dennoch denkt man bei Tidal nicht ans Aufhören und man hat bekannt gegeben, dass der Musikdienst nun auch für Android Auto und Amazon Fire TV erhältlich ist. Erst im Dezember wurde Android TV zum Portfolio ergänzt. Die App für Fire TV gibt es im Fire TV App-Store. Die Android Auto-Unterstützung kommt mit der aktuellen Android-App.
