How to search for TIDAL playlists using ROON

Hey all,

I think I must be missing something but I can’t figure out how to search for TIDAL playlists using ROON.

That shows some very limited ‘promoted’ playlists, doesn’t it? If I wanted a list of all ‘Disco’ playlist, how would I accomplish that?


Did you click on MORE?

If you click on ‘MORE’ you indeed get more playlists, but not all, and still no way to search or filter for a keyword.

I think you’re not able to search for playlists on TIDAL without using the TIDAL app. I hoped (and expected) the same thing would be possible using ROON.

I no longer use TIDAL, but on Qobuz, I can filter by genre, so I imagine the limitation is from what TIDAL exposes through their API.

Basically the search doesn’t search playlists that are not in you library already. You have to favourite them in the Tidal app for them to come into Roon, which kind of defeats things. Same goes for Qobuz. Roon only sees some of the available playlists via its integration not sure if that’s by design or they just are not available for them to do so. They do limit some things to their apps only.

That’s what I hoped wasn’t true. It makes using TIDAL playlist in ROON too complicated.
