Music streaming app Spotify introduces a new video podcast feature. The feature will allow listeners to listen as well as watch Podcasts from select Podcasts creators. It is available for both free and paid users.
The feature can be accessed from both mobile and desktop app. Once users press the start button, videos will start automatically and audio will be sync immediately. If you lock your device or switch between apps, the audio will keep playing in the background. In addition, users will also download the audio of the podcast to listen on the go.
According to TheVerge, few shows that will launch with videos are Book of Basketball 2.0, Fantasy Footballers, The Misfits Podcast, H3 Podcast, The Morning Toast, Higher Learning with Van Lathan & Rachel Lindsay, and The Rooster Teeth Podcast.
“The new feature allows select creators to bring both audio and video content to Spotify, enabling them to connect more meaningfully with their listeners, expand viewership, and deepen audience engagement,” Spotify wrote in a blog.
