In an effort to keep pace with the exponential growth and immense change in the music industry, Spotify has announced its long-awaited video and podcast partners.
The list of U.S. partners and shows includes content from Viacom, VICE media, NBC, BBC, and Harper Collins, among many others. This new content will be released first to Android users, with an iOS update expected shortly after. The service will initially be free, in order to give users more reasons to stay engaged with the company.
Once updated, you will find a "Your Library" icon that replaces "Your Music", where you will still ee the familiar options plus a new item labeled "Shows". Further expanding that leads to "Featured Shows" which will include the partners mentioned above, plus even more video and audio. Viewers can find material from Ellen DeGeneres and the Disney empire, and the podcasts Stuff You Should Know, Freakonomics Radio, and more.
