Hey folks,

 

Thanks for reaching out about this.

 

While this isn't currently possible, we value the feedback in this thread and have made sure that it reaches the right team. We always strive to improve, so you can be sure that your voices will be heard.

In the meantime, there are also a couple of related ideas on our Exchange that you can add your vote to:

You can find more info on how your feedback reaches Spotify via the Idea Exchange in this Spotify Answer.

 

Keep in mind, that if you don't have a good mobile connection or you want to save data, you can download the episodes while on WiFi and turn on Offline Mode. You'll then be able to listen to the audio of the podcast with only the app being offline. No need to turn on Airplane mode to disable any other network functionality.

 

Hope this helps. If you have questions, we are here for you.

Their moderators here Just copy and paste the same answer "if it gets enough up votes we will look at it"  while thousands on Reddit says they can't access the community forum side via mobile. I had to get a desktop computer and jump through hoops to do it too.

Then you look in this community section and see the disable video suggestion with 7 thousands of votes get a moderator say "while we don't gave plans to disable video, we are marking it as a good idea", thst was in Jan 2019...

I have no hope for any support from Spotify and am sad Joe will lose millions of viewers/listens and it won't be because they didn't try. They simply just can't listen...

Turning on Offline Mode in settings has worked for me. If listening while changing the setting, just pause then play and it should switch to the episode image. Hope this helps, not ideal to have to go into settings anytime I want to listen to JRE, hopefully Spotify will fix this. 

This is obviously only useful for downloaded podcasts on mobile.

Please stop the video.

I have never "seen" a podcast of JRE and I don't need to. The video gets in the way and makes me listen to the episodes in a different player. I would like to make Spotify my sole podcast player, but the video issues with this podcast and lack of Your Mom's House makes this impossible.

If you buckle to the editorial demands of your employees, I will cancel my account all together.

It is such a joke that this issue wasn't thought of ahead of time.  One of the staples of my workday is downloading a JRE podcast, going on airplane mode, and locking into some deep, uninterrupted work.  Now even when the podcast is downloaded, play will be disrupted within a few minutes of activating offline mode within Spotify, airplane mode on the phone, etc.  Between the issues with playback and the editorial issues of censoring certain episodes, this could turn out to be a $100 million investment for naught if Spotify does not shape up quick.

  • A quick solution until they figure out a toggle system.

1. Download podcast

2. Turn phone airplane mode on

3. Activate bluetooth while in airplane mode to listen in car.

4. Play podcast (now video will be disabled)

 5. If you want you can toggle airplane mode on every so often to check text messages, email, etc.

Thank you for reaching out!  I have already tried this unless the sequencing is key.  I'm generally already connected to Airpods, download an episode, and then go on airplane mode with my fingers crossed for clean playback.  However, within a few minutes the podcast will continue to show time ticking off without anything playing and rewinds and fast forwards yield no result until you turn service back on.

I couldn't agree more. All sorts of playback issues when cell service is poor. Google podcast player works fine though. Please allow for no video!!!

Hi, Spotify needs to make fixing this a priority.

 

I am working away from WIFI and having to access the video feed to just get the audio is ridiculous as it eats up cell data like crazy.

Yup. I stopped using Spotify. I won't switch until they force me.
