Spotify is rolling out music videos in beta to premium subscribers. The streaming giant announced on Wednesday, but the feature is only available to users in 11 selected markets for now. Currently, there is a limited catalogue of music videos from fan favourites such as Ed Sheeran, Doja Cat, Ice Spice, Aluna and Asake.

So many times in my own experience and for countless others, music videos play a key role in hooking you: taking you from being a listener to leaning in and becoming a fan,” says Charlie Hellman, Vice President and Head of Music Product at Spotify. “They’re an important part of so many artists’ tool kits, and it’s a natural fit for them to live in the same place that more than half a billion people choose to listen to music.”

Music videos in beta is rolling out for premium users in the U.K., Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, Brazil, Colombia, Philippines, Indonesia, and Kenya. Spotify says it hopes to “expand the catalogue of music videos and bring the feature to more users and countries.”
