Spotify has always stated that video podcasts will include original and exclusive content from Spotify. Apart from this, some third party podcasts will also be included in this. But the creators had no way to publish the video. Those who wanted to publish their video podcasts had to move to another platform like YouTube.
Now creators will also be able to upload videos from their accounts through anchors. This will happen exactly as the audio is created and published. Once published, fans can listen to the podcast across the platform. This also includes mobile apps, desktop apps, web players, and most smart TVs and game consoles. Creators will also be able to monetize their video content through subscriptions, just as they can their audio podcasts.
