It’s been a while since we heard that Spotify could launch its own video service, today  this information was confirmed from the Wall Street Journal, the video service will be released this week first for Android users.

Rumors started last year, but with no official information about the service. Today the Swedish company confirmed the launch for Android users in the US, UK, Germany and Sweden. iOS users will benefit from it soon after, reports WSJ.

Video content will come from a mix of providers, including BBC, Comedy Central, ABC and ESPN. Shiva Rajaraman, the product vice president of the company, told the WSJ, that video will come in packages, such as News of the Week or Laughs at Lunch, etc.

The question is how Spotify will monetize them video streaming? Of course, one option are the ads in the videos or paid subscription to remove them, but still there is no official information about it.

With this move, Spotify enter into competition with YouTube Red of Google, and it can affect the price of subscriptions to both services.
