Today, I'm checking out Joe Rogan's podcast in the Spotify program and was wondering if there was an option to adjust the speed of the video?

 

Normally when I watch things on the YouTube, I watch videos on 1.5 speed. Watching the Joe Rogan podcast in the Spotify app isn't ideal without the ability to adjust the speed. 

 

Is this option available?

Hi @samlehman, thanks for reaching out to the Community!

 

This is an option available in the Spotify app. You will find these options in the Now Playing view.

  • Click Billy-J_0-1599281563017.pngto control the play speed.
  • Click Billy-J_1-1599281562968.png to skip forward 15 seconds, or tapBilly-J_2-1599281563047.pngto rewind 15 seconds.

If you don’t see these options attach a screenshot of what you’re seeing exactly and I’ll take a closer look.

 

Let me know how this goes!

This does not seem to be an option on my MacBook

The speed control options (1.5x, 2x, etc) are only showing on some but not all, whether on desktop or android. Why is this please? Thanks.

Hey @samlehman@spotifypassword, and @whusym

 

If this happens only with video podcasts, I'm afraid this feature isn't possible at the moment, but I could see how this can be useful. You can always create a new Idea about this here, and I'll also pass your feedback on to the right folks.

I'll be here if you need anything else!

Is this a feature that is planned? Not being able to control video playback speed is a huge pain for longer podcasts

Same here - doesn't allow for playback speed on video podcasts on the desktop app for me in Windows - latest version as of 10/20/2020. It does allow for faster playback speed on my iPhone with the video.

 

Other podcasts I subscribe to without video have the playback speed option working on desktop, so it appears to only be video. Would love to see this enabled! Deal breaker to view Rogan on a desktop right now.

Hey folks,

 

Thanks posting here in the Community! We'll gladly shed some light on the situation.

 

Currently the option to change playback speed for podcasts with videos is available only for mobile devices. If you'd like to see this functionality extended onto desktops and laptops, we'd recommend you take a look in our Idea Exchange and see if someone has already submitted an idea for this feature to be added  and if not post your own.

 

The Idea Exchange is a great way for us to see what our users are interested in and how many people like a certain idea. You can read more about it here.

 

Hope you find this useful. Keep us posted if you have any questions.
