Video streaming platform Netflix is rolling out certain improvements to its Android app this weekend. This most recent change will let users pick the playback speed of whatever they are viewing. Users will have the option to pick between 0.5x, 0.75x, 1.25x, 1.5x, and the current 1x speeds. The 1x speeds, will remain the default speeds for users and the individuals who need to play their videos quicker or more slow will have the choice of doing as such.
Other video video streaming platforms like YouTube have diverse playing speed and Netflix is just catching up. YouTube has more diverse playing speeds yet the ones on Netflix will be sufficient for a beginning.
Playback speed choices will be accessible even on downloaded titles that have been downloaded for offline viewing.
This feature is expected to start rolling out this weekend and will be accessible to all Android users in the coming weeks.
Users should pick in to utilize the playback speeds on each and every video they watch and it won’t be the default setting on another video on the grounds that the past video they were watching was set to an alternate speed. This implies each video you play will be set at 1x speed regardless of whether on the past video you were watching it at 1.5x rates.
This feature was first reported in 2019 and the company has been searching for approaches to adequately acquaint it with its platform . Netflix also confirmed that users have requested for this feature for years now.
This feature will be accessible on web and iOS soon.
