Netflix launches feature to change playback speed despite criticism


Netflix started testing a new feature on their Android app last year that allows users to adjust the speed at which a movie or series plays.

While criticizing the idea of ​​Judd Apatow and Brad Bird among others, Netflix is ​​going to make the feature available around the world in the coming weeks and test them on the iOS and TV app.

Users will be able to play movies and series fifty and seventy five percent slower and twenty five and fifty percent faster. However, it is not a default setting, but an adjustment that has to be made over and over again.

Keela Robison of Netflix’s product innovation department says some subscribers have been asking for such a feature for years and both the National Association of the Deaf and the National Federation of the Blind in the United States applaud them.

They believe that some deaf people can read subtitles more easily if they are delayed, and many blind people can understand and appreciate sound that plays faster.
