TIDAL now shares songs and videos as stories in Facebook and also Instagram.
Jay-Z’s streaming platform, TIDAL is aiming at grabbing new sign ups to itself with a new feature it just announced. We thought iHeartRadio was the only streaming music service which allowed users to music as stories in their Facebook and Instagram accounts, but TIDAL is now out with the same feature.
On Tuesday, Aug. 20, the global streaming and Entertainment platform announced the newest features on its apps (android and iOS). Speaking on the enhancement, COO, Lior Tibon said;
“We see members every day sharing their favorite TIDAL content across social media. With TIDAL’s leading video catalog, it became a priority to better showcase the content and assimilate into other popular apps– we’re proud to continue leading the way for video content amongst our peers.”
The announcement showed it had made enhancements to it’s sharing capacity on social media. This means that users of the streaming service will be able to share their music catalog to both their Facebook and Instagram stories. Also, playable videos can be shared to Instagram stories too; this is one more feature than iHeartRadio allows.
This feature is now available on both TIDAL Android and iOS apps, and can be accessed by clicking the three-dot menu and selecting “share“. Sadly, sharing songs from the app to social media does not mean they would actually play, rather, they can only be shared as still images in both Instagram and Facebook stories. Shared videos will also appear as still images when in Facebook stories, but as a 15 sec preview when shared in Instagram stories.
