Watch and Listen: Introducing music videos on Spotify

Watch and Listen: Introducing music videos on Spotify

Spotify knows that the listening experience is a way to connect artists with fans on many levels. But what if we could enhance these connections with a different perspective? 

With this in mind, Spotify is introducing a new and powerful way to listen to your favorite songs: Music Videos.

This exciting new feature is arriving in beta for Premium users across 11 countries at first. At this point, Music Videos is with a limited catalog, but it includes hits from local artists and global ones like Ed Sheeran, The Weeknd, and Ariana Grande.

How to watch music videos on Spotify:

  • Music Videos is being rolled out in beta for Premium users in some specific countries. This includes Brazil, Colombia, Germany, Indonesia, Italy, Kenya, Philippines, Poland, Sweden, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.
  • Music Videos is available for Premium users on iOS, Android, desktop, and TV devices. 
  • You can access it through the Now Playing View, when listening to supported music tracks. You just need to tap the “Switch to Video” toggle and the music video will start playing from the beginning. To head back to audio-only mode, tap on “Switch to Audio”.
  • You can watch the videos in either portrait or landscape modes, and it is also available for Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode.

 

Considering it's in Beta, Spotify will continue to improve the new feature based on feedback both from users and artists.

 

I hope you are so excited as I am for this new way to enhance the connection with your favorite artists. For any feedback on the matter you may have, you are more than welcome to share it with us below on this thread.

Last, but not least, the official announcement from the Spotify Newsroom is here if you want to take a look at it.

Yes, set it to audio only 

PublishYouOne - Because I Love Music So Much

Problem is that it defaults back to video every time, so whenever I turn on music on the TV, I'll have to press audio again...

I am just waiting on this feature to dump Youtube Music, Tidal, Apple Music (yes, I do subscribe to all three...)

 

Youtube Music can't shuffle anything properly and keep hearing the same songs.  Video content is huge however.  Most of my environment is Google something...  But I cannot have a playlist of only video clips.

Apple Music allows for either tracks or videos and has an excellent selection of either.  I can have an entire playlist of only video clips.  But Apples plays nice within its own devices...

Tidal is a good compromise, plays nice on Google-Chromecast devices, allows to create video-only playlists.  Music library however seems to have some limited content available.

And then there is Spotify which nails just about every weaker aspects of the other streaming services but doesn't have videos, yet.  I can't wait until this feature is available in the US!

Yes please, would love to see this in Australia. My own Rage programming? Sign me up!

Is there a way to filter results so that you only get songs with video? Or are there ay playlists with songs that have a video? I like the future too, to use it on TV.
