Spotify, one of the most popular music platforms in the world, has launched a new feature that will allow users to watch podcasts in certain countries.
Spotify continues to be among the most popular music platforms in the world, although it has been experiencing some difficulties recently. For this reason, the Swedish-based music service provider platform wants to provide a better experience for its users by adding new features to its application.
Of course, the increasingly popular podcasts that allow you to listen to one or more people’s conversations on any topic are also very important content for Spotify. Because the world’s most popular podcasts are on this platform and are followed by millions of people.
Video Podcast feature available in four countries
Let’s talk about this feature first. The ‘Video Podcast’ feature allows podcasters to broadcast in a video format. This makes it possible to watch popular podcast programs. According to the new statements, all content producers in the USA, UK, Australia and New Zealand will now be able to upload video podcasts to the platform via Anchor. If you ask what Anchor is; Acquired by Spotify in 2019, this platform allows users to record and edit podcasts.
It is possible to say that this new move may be against the popular video platform YouTube. YouTube has become the most popular platform for video podcasts in recent years. However, it can be stated that Spotify’s new step is likely to change this situation, as it will include very popular podcasts, especially the program presented by Joe Rogan.
Finally, Spotify, which has released a press release about the feature that has been working on for the last few years, stated that with Video Podcast, users can establish a deeper connection with the content.
