As technology advance so as big tech companies improve their services in order to suit the new trending. Many of us while streaming on youtube TV, we prefer speeding up the videos so we can save our internet MB in order to use it for more important things, many internet streaming services have integrated the means of doing this into their platform, and now YouTube TV is also picking up this handy feature.
These new features let you have more control over the playback speed, and the interface and functionality are similar to that of YouTube TV. Currently, you can set the speed to 0.25, 0.5x, 1.25x, 1.5x, and 2x, but there’s no option to set a custom speed. Obviously, you’ll only be able to control the speed of content that’s not live streaming.
A reader in androidpolice spotted the feature on the YouTube TV app for Microsoft Xbox too. Unfortunately, it seems like the Android client is yet to pick up this new feature, so if you love streaming on youtube TV with your android phone, you will have to wait for the updates to be pushed to android and then update your youtube TV app in order to get the feature.
I feel that this new video speed feature is still on its testing right now because not everyone has received it; either that or it’s rolling out slowly. For what it’s worth, a Reddit post suggests Google has been experimenting with this on its mobile and web clients for a few months now.
