What is a video podcast?

What is a video podcast, you may be wondering? A video podcast is a regular podcast containing a video element, allowing viewers to listen to their favorite creators and watch at the same time. Either a single static image or a video recording of the podcast hosts and guests can be used. 

Does Spotify have video podcasts?

Yes! Spotify does have video podcasts. Spotify has released their 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. Studies have shown that when a viewer looks into the eyes of a creator, even through a screen, 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 may deepen audience engagement and expand viewership. 

How to watch video podcasts on Spotify

Spotify video podcasts are available to watch on desktop and mobile devices for both Free and Premium users. To start watching and listening, just press play. Unlike watching a video podcast on YouTube, Spotify allows users to multitask between apps and lock a device during an episode. The video podcast will continue to play its audio element in the background with no interruption. Listeners will also be able to download the audio on the go to a mobile device.
