“I tried to download the music in "Hi-Fi" quality, then I looked in the internal files of my phone, there were some files inside the tidal folder but without format. Can I rip music from Tidal as MP3 files, and how?”

Tidal is a good source to access music. We can listen to Tidal music online and play Tidal offline on certain devices. However, we are unable to download music from Tidal to the local drive.
