One of my long-awaited YouTube features has just arrived! Being very fond of watching videos, I love to fine tune them to suit my specific taste—based on mood or convenience. It's finally possible to adjust video playback in YouTube on iOS devices.
You have as many as seven options to tweak the playback speed of your favorite YouTube video on the iOS device. Comparatively, there are only six options in the web version of the app on the computer. If you ever come across any cool video and are unable to catch a specific word or wish to simply listen to any song fast just to have fun, you can set it up to run as per your wish.
