The Gist

Spotify has announced a handful of podcasts on the platform will offer a video format. 

The List

  • The video podcast feature will be available to both free users and premium users. 
  • It will also be optional, meaning that users can choose to simply listen to the audio and do not have to watch the video. 
  • Audio of the podcasts are also available for download to listen offline. 
  • Video podcasting was being tested on Spotify in May, and will only be available for select podcasts for the time being. 
  • Some believe that Spotify is looking to compete directly with YouTube, having recently signed a contract with the Joe Rogan Podcast, the most popular in the world.
