Netflix offers slow motion and fast forward functions
Netflix offers slow motion and fast forward functions From 0.5x to 1.5x, you will soon be able to enjoy your movies and series at the speed of your choice. But not necessarily on all screens. We explain all that to you.
If the function has been available on YouTube for many years, the streaming giant of movies and series Netflix is finally offering the same to its subscribers. But there is a little subtlety to this addition.
While it is now possible to view Netflix content between 0.5x and 1.5x normal speed, it is currently only possible to do this on Android devices. The brand should offer the same tool on iOS soon. But what about boxes and smart TVs? We currently do not have any information on this subject and it is a shame given that it undoubtedly represents a much larger share of users than on phones.
Speed up and slow down your movie, what’s the point? Who is it for?
For the majority of spectators, this functionality will undoubtedly never be used, but it could be useful, for example, for people with visual or hearing disabilities. They have long demanded the addition of this tool to the platform’s programs. For someone who is deaf or hard of hearing, they can slow down the video on the screen to have time to read the displayed subtitles. A blind person will be able to speed up content to enjoy a faster pace to which they are accustomed.
