TIDAL, a music and video subscription streaming service, is offering free streaming for the first time. Access to the entire music catalog is available at no additional cost if you are willing to sit through advertisements and live without top-quality sounds. TIDAL’s standard $9.99 subscription plan now includes high-res audio. Plus, there’s now a $19.99 plan with premium features.

Finally, Xbox cloud gaming will soon be available on some consoles. Microsoft is rolling out the new feature, allowing users to try games by streaming, before actually downloading them. It will require users to have a game pass subscription.
