Spotify thinks that video is a complimentary feature to the audio experience. It allows users to actually listen to these video podcasts in the background, if they want to, even when the device is locked. Users can anytime switch back to watch video. It is important, however, to note that users will not be able to download the video content for offline viewing, only audio content download is permitted in the app.
The feature update will be rolling out today to all markets worldwide where podcasts are supported, so you may not see the feature immediately.
