That’s COOL. I prefer the second method.

It is recommended to use Tidal HiFi Downloader to get songs from Tidal play on Google Home offline. Because you don’t need to be a Tidal subscriber to listen to Tidal through the speaker. And the downloading of Tidal files by the downloader can be played not only on Google Home but other devices like streamers, MP3 players, etc.
