What does this mean for Fullscreen musicians in the SoundCloud Monetization process?
Nothing has changed thus far. Your music will still have the capabilities to be heard by all listeners on the Free version of SoundCloud.

At the beginning of this year, Spotify launched its video channel with content from ESPN, Comedy Central, MTV, Vice News, BBC, Slate, and others. On both Android and iOS, you can get to Spotify’s videos by selecting “Shows” in the browser menu. There, you will see two options for both Audio and Video shows.
They also just announced a new slate of 12 music-themed original programs. We’re excited for the future of Spotify Video!
