What is a video podcast?

A video podcast is so much more than the obvious (a podcast that you can watch). It's a chance to visually engage your audience with your content. Video podcasts go beyond sharing your thoughts and ideas with words, as you can with audio-only podcasts. You're also using visual elements to make a stronger connection and create an immersive experience for your podcast listeners.

Whether you’re demonstrating something, sharing location visuals, or revealing guest expressions, the video component can elevate your show to new heights.

Why video podcasts on Spotify?

Give podcast audiences the full picture

Nothing gets lost in translation. With video podcasts, your audience sees your facial expressions, body language, and surroundings. They can be completely immersed in the experience and access the full context of your episodes.

Get promotional content from every episode

Video podcasts also provide a wealth of material to use as promotional assets. Repurpose the full episode into shorter clips and share them on social media platforms that thrive on visual content so you can reach a wider audience.   

Grow your show

With over 500 million users and over 100,000 video podcasts already, Spotify is your destination for video podcasts. Video podcasts see higher episode listenership and retention on Spotify. 

Give fans control of their experience

Fans can seamlessly switch between listening and watching your video podcast—meaning they can enjoy your episodes however they want, wherever they go.
