Swedish music streaming service Spotify plans to launch video content across its platform this week, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Spotify’s Android app will be the first to receive the new feature, with the iOS app following by the end of next week in the US, the UK, Germany, and Sweden.

The company’s initial plan was to distribute videos and podcasts from May 2015, with a catalogue of content providers that included ESPN, Comedy Central, the BBC, Vice Media, and Maker Studios.

For months, Spotify has been testing streaming video on its apps, with less than 10% of its user base in four markets participating in the trial.
