How many hours a day do you spend watching YouTube videos? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could chop that time in half?
I’ll show you a quick-and-easy way to change the YouTube playback speed of videos.
YouTube gives users the option to modify the playback speed of some videos. This is particularly useful in the case of videos that you are obligated to watch (training videos, terrible fan videos, the occasional conference talk, etc.) and want to get through quickly. You have the option to speed a video to one-and-a-half times normal speed and double normal speed. You can also slow a video to half speed or quarter speed, which can be handy when trying to draw out a training-over-lunch session.
How to speed up YouTube videos on Android, iPhone & Desktop
- Click on “Speed” (it should be on “Normal” by default)
- Choose your playback speed
- Slow Motion: 0.25, 0.5, 0.75
- Increase Speed: 1.25, 1.5, 2
