Apple could negotiate the takeover of Tidal

Yesterday, June 30, the Apple Music music service celebrated its 1st anniversary. After this first year,The company managed to reach 15 million subscribers, a figure that is not bad at all considering that it is a newcomer to the market, although it has received help from the entire ecosystem where it is available: iOS, tvOS , Android and macOS. Apple recognized the malfunction and completely redesigned the application with the arrival of iOS 10, as users using the first beta of iOS 10 have already been able to verify.

In 2014, Apple bought the music streaming service Beats for $3,000 million, a service it adapted to its needs to launch Apple Music a year later on June 30, 2015. Since then, many users have expressed his discomfort with confusion generated by the use of your applicationespecially on the iOS platform.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple is in talks with rapper Jay Z to buy Tidal music service. According to the newspaper, this information was disclosed by sources linked to the negotiations. Apparently, both companies have held various interviews to test the waters and see if there really is interest on both sides. If the negotiations are finally successful, this acquisition would mean a new boost for the streaming music service Apple Music.

A Tidal spokesperson said it had no conversations with Apple. This is not the first, and I suspect it will not be the last, published rumors about possible interest from other companies to buy Tidal. A few months ago, it was rumored that Samsung might have plans to buy it to expand its music streaming service, but in the end, the talks didn't come to fruition.

What this rumor implies is that Tidal owners want to get rid of this music service, because otherwise the news related to its possible purchase would not be published every several months. Currently and according to official figures from Tidal, the streaming music platform for artists, it has 4.2 million subscribers. Of those 4.2 million subscribers, 45% pay the $19.99 fee to enjoy higher quality music, one of the only perks Tidal can offer music lovers.
