Coming today: New playback speeds and video player settings

We’re making it easier for you to customize your video player settings on Twitch with the addition of playback speed controls for uploads and past broadcasts and a fresh new Settings menu.

You can speed up your videos to double speed to catch up more quickly on streams you missed, or sloooooooow thiiiiiiiiings dooooooown as far as 0.25 speed to catch every detail of a killer play. You can find these settings on all Twitch saved videos in the updated settings menu. Use them wisely!

When you tap the gear icon, you’ll see that we’ve also updated some labels, grouped a few settings together, and generally made it easier to access the most frequently used settings. Video quality options are still at the top, so you can quickly check the resolution and frame rate.

Check out the updates now and let us know what you think of the improvements!
