OSX version has no Qobuz/TIDAL support
The Windows version has Qobuz and TIDAL Credentials support but not the OSX version. Is it intentional ?

While hi-res streams from both services only require FLAC, low-res streams require support for AAC (Tidal) and MP3 (Qobuz). If we ship our standard codecs, we'd have to pay license and patent fees for these codecs. To allow us to ship free players, we're gradually updating them to use existing native codecs for these formats.

Work to use native codecs is in place for Linux, in progress for Windows and pending for Mac. Qobuz and Tidal support will be enabled once the necessary codecs are available.
