What is a video podcast?

A video podcast is no different to a regular podcast you can find on Spotify, but it contains a video element. Video podcasts allow viewers to listen to their favorite creators and watch at the same time. Neat right? 

Podcasts usually have a single static image as the background or a video recording of the podcast hosts and guests.

Does Spotify have video podcasts?

Yes! Spotify does have video podcasts. Spotify has released its first-ever version of the video podcast feature with select creators.

When the platform grows, video podcasts will be made available for independent creators and businesses. The new feature will allow users, including both free and paid subscribers to watch video content. 

Why create a video podcast?

Video podcasts allow (at the moment) selected creators to connect with their listeners on a more meaningful, face-to-face level. When viewers look into the eyes of a creator, even virtually, it helps them feel connected to that person and become more receptive to what the creator has to say. Humans are hardwired to look at faces, so the video element within a podcast may deepen audience engagement and expand viewership.
