Spotify launches its new video podcast function with choose podcasts
With the latest Spotify feature, developers can connect deeply with their audience
Many podcast fans love to watch their favorite podcasts as much as they enjoy listening to them. Through these images, fans can get to know their favorite podcast hosts even better and developers can connect more deeply with their audience. Why Spotify introduces the first version of our new video podcast feature with selected podcasts. Now listeners in all markets where podcasts are supported can listen to or watch these podcasts when the feature is introduced.
Video podcasts build on and enhance the brand's existing audio experience, so free and premium users can connect more deeply to their favorite video content podcasts.
Listeners can listen to podcasts such as Book of Basketball 2.0, Fantasy Footballers, The Misfits Podcast, H3 Podcast, The Morning Toast, Higher Learning with Van Lathan and Rachel Lindsay and The Rooster Teeth Podcast for a visual and acoustic feast.
To start playback, simply press play on your desktop or mobile app. The videos created by the creator are automatically started and immediately synchronized with your audio feed. If you're multitasking between apps or want to lock your device during the episode, don't worry: your audio will play in the background without interruption (and with minimal data usage). All listeners can still download audio to their mobile devices to listen to shows on the go.
With the new feature, selected developers can bring both audio and video content to Spotify to create a more meaningful connection with their listeners, increase viewership, and deepen audience engagement. This is one way to enrich the audio experience – for fans and developers alike.
