Spotify has today introduced a new video podcast feature for both Free and Premium users.

Available in all markets where podcasts are supported, the first version of this video podcast feature works with select podcasts including 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.

You can play Spotify’s video podcasts either on the desktop or mobile app; videos will start and sync automatically with the audio feed. Audio will also continue to play when you navigate away from the app.

In Feb 2019, Spotify made its first big moves to become a major podcast player when it bought podcast networks Gimlet Media and Anchor FM. It also acquired Parcast a month later.
