Spotify allows more creators to upload video podcasts

Now more accesible through Anchor

Spotify is opening access to a new tool that will allow creators to begin publishing their video podcasts to its service.

The company announced earlier today that it is starting to roll out video podcasts with a number of key creators. The tool will be accessible through Anchor, Spotify’s podcasting platform, and will be an easy way for creators to publish video content to Spotify.

It’s been over two years since the streaming service launched podcasts, and since then, they have invested around $1 billion into acquiring podcast networks like Gimlet Media and signing exclusive licensing deals with big podcasts including, The Joe Rogan Experience and The Michelle Obama Podcast.

While Spotify is opening access to Anchor creators, interested creators can now sign up to the waitlist. Creators will be able to monetize their podcasts through subscriptions, allowing them to share exclusive paid content or even make the video option only available to subscribers.

Spotify’s video lineup, in the meantime, will include content from its existing podcasters along with new video creators such as Philip DeFranco, The GaryVee Audio Experience, Jasmine Chiswell, Tap In w/ Harry Jowsey The WAN Show, and more.
