Furthermore, a report by Android Police notes that this option to control the playback speed on Netflix for Android app is in pilot testing for over a week. However, we are yet to get an official confirmation on the same from the streaming service.

It is interesting to see that Netflix will bring a feature that will let users control the playback speed of content. This will let users watch their favorite series or movies quickly in the least time or slowly. This move comes after the rollout of the Netflix service for Rs. 199 onwards for a single device. We can expect to get an official confirmation from the company regarding this feature soon.
