Personal profiles are coming to Tidal

Being able to share user-generated playlists is an important part of using music streaming services. This is something that music streaming service Tidal lacked. However, that’s about to change, as personal profiles are coming to Tidal.

Tidal might not be much of a household name in the world of music streaming, but it’s still really popular. The service is known for delivering hi-fi music whereas other services stick to CD quality.

It’s a pricey plan where the most feature-rich payment here is $19.99/month. However, that’s worth it for some folks who like to take care of their ears.


Personal profiles are coming to Tidal

There was never really a community aspect to Tidal. It was just a platform to stream music and that’s it; however, that is about to change.

According to 9To5Google, Tidal is going to bring personal profiles. These personal profiles create a bit of an interface where people can share the playlists that they created. Seeing playlists created by people is a nice change of pace compared to the algorithmically curated music we see all the time.

It’s a bit tough to find exciting hidden gems when you’re getting a constant feed of selections based on the most popular music. So, people should definitely enjoy seeing personal playlists.


As you can expect, people will only see your playlists if you make them public. You can choose to make your playlists private and just keep them to yourself.

You can customize these profiles

If you want to really personalize your profile, you’re free to. When you set up a profile, you will pick a username. These usernames are pretty versatile because you can add spaces and emojis. So, you can ditch the underscores.

If you are excited about these personal profiles, you won’t have to wait for long. The company is currently rolling this feature out to both Android and iOS. If you don’t see it, make sure that your app is fully updated.


Find the Tidal app in your respective app store, and see if there are any updates present. If it says that your app is up to date, and you still don’t see the feature, then you might just want to wait a few days.
