This is interesting — layering video on top of audio/podcast content... def looks like YouTube content being woven into the Spotify UI. I bet they used Joe Rogan content in the prelaunch UI mocks!

@chrismessina I was wondering how Joe's podcast would be exclusive on Spotify without losing the video version. Now we know.

There's so much opportunity to innovate in the podcasting space. I'd love to see Spotify be the one to lead it with this new visual element to them. Imagine webinar-like interactivity like polls or forms. Or programmatic ad breaks so you can sponsor ad spots on previous episodes. Excited to see this medium evolve past just a hosted audio file.
@davepoly wow, interesting. I wonder if they'd be into that kind of experience, given how Spotify historically has been focused on monopolizes the ears, rather than the eyes...!
@davepoly We're on it! :)
@davepoly love those thoughts! Let's dream big!
I'd be more interested to see how the Mobile UI looks like.
Great work on this! It's is an incredibly intriguing approach within the space of podcasting. I'm curious if it will have any influence on other platforms, especially those that are interested in bringing video into the mix. I love how it helps users dive deeper and feel more connected with what they're listening to! I'm looking forward to seeing what comes next and can't wait to use it. I always love seeing what comes from the designers and product teams at Spotify 🔥
So great! I have so many podcasts I would like to watch but they are only offered fully on Spotify!
