Sonos integrates many services, yes, but they do it in a very simplistic way. Services are not fully integrated with or blended into your library. Each lives in its own ghetto, and you can browse them with a very basic list-based mechanism.
Our approach–seamlessly blending your content with content from services, and allowing for the same ownership-like experience for streaming and local content–is significantly more ambitious.
It is important to us to line up at least one other streaming service, so that we are not solely reliant on TIDAL. It will have to be lossless to make sense with such a quality-focused product–which limits the options. This is an area where we’re actively working, but not a fast process. The technical/data pre-requisites that are required to accomplish our style of integration are more than these companies are accustomed to providing, plus many of the most popular streaming companies (Spotify, Pandora notably) do not like to work with others on stuff like this at all.
We don’t share ETA’s until work on a project is substantially done and into alpha testing. Too many variables or opportunities to change plans or re-prioritize. It just leads to disappointment.
This is coming for TIDAL. Work is underway.
