I got it and my voucher expires in one more month so I would say no.

Wtf, no Chromecast?

Oh for some dumb reason they use a nonstandard icon for it, unlike every other app on the planet.

This is the Hi-Fi subscription, which makes the audio quality much better than Spotify (the regular subscription is only slightly better). I copied my playlist of 60ish songs over from Spotify to Tidal and was missing 2 songs; selection seems to be pretty decent to me.

The biggest downside in migrating to Tidal from Spotify IMO is the loss of curated playlists for you (i.e. Spotify's Discover Weekly). Other than that, I've been pretty happy.

6 months free is for standard streaming. This 3 months free is for Hifi streaming which is higher (lossless) quality.

Also the 6 months free that was available (still might be) could have been switched to Hifi but it would be 3 months free.

It depends how you use your streaming app. Both have pros and cons. The two major areas I'd say Tidal definitely has an advantage is the sound quality on their hifi subscription and exclusive access to certain artists' material (e.g. Kanye West, Jay-Z) which might not matter to you at all depending on your tastes.

I would say that Spotify definitely has the advantage both in terms of playlists generally, and the curated playlist features. I'd say that leaving aside the exclusive artists I mentioned before, Spotify typically has a better library.
