Youtube Web Is Testing More Granular Custom Playback Speed Controls

We all know that while watching a YouTube video when we wish to speed up or slow down playback a little, we go to the settings.  However, after heading to the speed controls, we have only eight options. Recently, we have come to know that YouTube Web is testing a way to let you pick any speed you want in 0.05x increments up to a max of 2x.

On the YouTube web, you can speed up or slow down the playback by heading to the Speed menu of any currently-playing video. There are eight available options to choose from. However, youtube is now testing  a new Custom option that triggers the slider. It allows you to manually move it between 0.25x and 2x. This feature is not available for testing in our account right now. So, it means that it will be a server-side update that will make its way gradually to all users.

In addition to that, a few days back, we have come to know that apart from streaming music online, YouTube Music for Android is now letting you play locally stored audio files as well. However, the application still doesn’t support in-app local media playback but allows you to open music files from file managers, to play audio. In addition to that, the App can now handle files in most popular audio formats including MP3, Ogg, FLAC, and WAV.
