Spotify Video already showing up on a few devices

Spotify Video

#Spotify has long been expected to bring video to its popular music streaming platform. With the company undergoing testing of this feature, some users are apparently seeing video streaming on their app already, suggesting that the company might be ready for a wider release.

It is believed that the Android version of the Spotify app will receive video streaming later this week, while iPhone owners will follow suit in a week’s time. It is said that multiple content providers are tied up with Spotify right now including ESPN, Comedy Central, the BBC and Vice. Naturally, we’re not aware of any original programming at the moment, which is crucial for any streaming service to stand out from the crowd.

Spotify is the preferred music streaming app for millions out there, so this seems like a natural transition for the developers. Given that video rights are slightly different from music royalties, we expect to see a wider rollout for Spotify Video. This means that the service probably will be available outside the U.S., UK, Germany and Sweden.
