Anyone running Tidal on a Chromebook?

After doing another round of testing streaming services, I've decided to stay with Tidal (and supplement elsewhere as needed). I'm currently running it on an old Win10 PC to a DAC for stereo, and a Firestick for Atmos. This arrangement works, but it's obviously not as convenient as it could be, and the fan noise from the PC sometimes intrudes on quiet music. I thought that a cheap Chromebook might make a good solution. Tidal says that you can't download music to the Android client on Chrome OS, but I'm bit suspicious of their response. Anyone using a Chromebook as their source? What has been your experience? And if CB is not the ultimate solution, is their a consensus on what the "best" source is - PC, tablet, even a Shield? Thanks.

It works nicely on my Lenovo 32-bit ChromeOS tablet. I use it with Tidal Connect to the WiiM Mini.

On my 64-bit HP Chromebook, though, it crashes when attempting to use Tidal Connect to the WiiM. I've had a ticket open with Tidal on this for a couple of weeks.

Thanks to all, that's what I thought, but I needed a little confirmation before I go shopping.
