Tidal’s 'DJ' feature allows users to mix & share sessions with friends
Similar to remote sharing, the available version is currently running on beta
If Tidal is your first choice for streaming services and you’d like to meddle into the possibilities of breaking out into a bedroom DJ, their newest beta feature 'DJ’ might just be for you.
‘DJ’ is for those who are signed up for Tidal’s HiFi plus plan and early access program. The beta program allows users to create “sessions” and share them live with friends or other subscribers globally — similar to remote sharing.
Tidal also has a previous feature ‘Tidal of DJs’ which is different from its latest one and allows access to the streaming service’s complete catalogue of tracks.

Since it's still running on its beta version, only iOS users may take advantage of its mixing and sharing feature. If you’re running on the Android system, you’ll only be able to listen in on the mixes.
It also currently only allows music in AAC quality instead of Tidal’s well-known feature of playing music in high-fidelity audio. According to digitaltrends, Tidal mentions that “the DJ will hear the quality they selected and listeners will just hear the normal sound quality.”
