The all new playback speed adjustment control of Netflix let’s you play your favourite Movies and Series in both slow and fast forward modes. In slow playback speed, you will be able to play videos at two playback options- 0.75x and 0.5x. On the other hand, if you would like to fast forward the video, then also you will have two playback options which would be- 1.5x and 1.25x.
Netflix has ensured that the audio quality of Movies and Series won’t be affected due to the changes made in the playback speed.
