Podcast Speed in Web Player

Podcast Speed in Web Player







Chrome Browser, Windows 7


My Question or Issue



Am I missing something or is there no way to speed up playback of podcasts in the webplayer? I can do it just ifne in the mobile app, which is great, but can't see an option for it in PC browser.

Hey @Sploofington! Welcome to the Spotify Community. ^^



What do you mean with speeding up the playback?

Do you mean the 15 second jumps?

They're working fine for me in the web player. ^^



No, that is just skipping? I mean changing the speed as per the title. On mobile app I can change speed to x1.2, x1.5 etc, but cannot find this function on the webplayer.





Unfortunately this isn't possible right now on the web player. -.-

Hopefully it will get added soon. ^^



Could you please implement a function to increase/decrease the playback speed of everything (no matter if music or podcast or anything else) on any kind of device or the web player?

Its absolute standard (e.g. youtube).

Wow still nothing, **bleep** Spotify

Exactly its abso-LUTE stanDARD! aha 


Spotify Playback Speed Access on github unpack zip and put on chrome extension and u can!

wow still not there

So here we are, 4 years and a half after the initial request was made, and it still isn't there.

This is beyond pathetic.

It's even on the phone app already. How many developers do you have working over there? None?
