If you’re one of those people with little free time, or fond of listening to podcasts and watching series and movies, accelerated, Netflix have good news for you. And is that the streaming platform takes a few days doing testing on Android devices consistent add a function that allows you to speed up and slow down the playback speed of the content to the liking of the consumer.
The speeds in question, similar to that which we can select players online such as YouTube, will be – 0.5 x, 0.75 x, 1.25 x or 1.5 x, and are equipped with an automatic correction of the pitch of the sound so that the voices don’t sound distorted —too severe or too sharp— regardless of the speed of their issuance.
there have been Many voices that have risen up to praise the decision —there are people who want to watch the world burn, and is in their right to do so— while, on the opposite side, filmmakers like Judd Apatow or Peyton Reed have shown their displeasure at the alleged “improvement” of the service in testing, as can be seen in the following tweets.
This is a terrible idea, and I and every manager I know will fight against it. you

it All depends on the feedback that is received
because of the criticisms, the vice-president of service of Netflix, Keela Robison, has spoken on it by using the following statement:
“Usually we test new tools that could help to improve Netflix. In the last month, we have begun to test various additional controls, including the speed of viewing on mobile devices. It is an option that has been available since long ago in DVD players, and that has been requested frequently by our partners. For example, people want to see your favorite scene, or to go more slowly because you are watching a movie in a foreign language.
We have been sensitive to the concerns of the creators and we have not included larger screens, televisions specifically, in this test. We have also corrected automatically the pitch of the sound at speeds faster and slower. In addition, partners must choose to vary the speed every time you see something new in place of that Netflix keep its settings based on your last election.
we have No plans to give out these tests in the short term. And that we may add these options to all over the world at some point in time will depend on the feedback that we receive”
In my terms, finished adding this feature, do not use in any moment to see a series or movie at full speed —the playback -0,5 x is another thing, that to learn things installation and planning is always going of pearls—, but it is always good to have additives that give flexibility to the viewing experience. Do not plan to tear the garments with any novelty, no matter how inadequate that may seem.
