“In 2x, 1x, 0.5x…now testing more options in playback speed for videos. Some of you on Android and web will have different sets of playback speeds to choose from so you can slow down or speed up videos and voice Tweets,” Twitter said.
For the playback speed test, users will be able to choose from a speed range of 0.25x for slower replays to 2x for faster replays. There are up to eight speed options for this test, which matches that of Youtube videos.
This feature will come in handy if the speaker in a video is either too slow or too fast. You could adjust with the playback speed to hear and know what the person in the video is saying.
Twitter said the playback settings will apply to Tweet Videos, Amplify Videos, Voice Tweets, videos in DMs, and Video Live Replays, with some variation depending on platform.
