I was interested to check out the Joe Rogan Experience during work but was dismayed that the Windows app forces video playback the entire time. Our company is lenient on using Spotify during the workday on company laptops, but we've been notified about aggressive video streaming during the pandemic as corporate security tries to promote improved bandwidth for telecommuters. The idea of multiple employees (it's a very large company) streaming JRE video for hours on end will surely get Spotify blocked on the corporate network.
Suggestion: implementing a toggle switch at the top of a mixed-media podcast that switches between full video or audio-only. Despite my unique situation described above, I think it's also a reasonable request for others who simply might not care to watch the episode videos.
