Google Drive adds audio playback speed and notification controls for Android

Google Drive is a fantastic way to manage and share content in the cloud, but it's not perfect for every file type. If you're constantly exchanging meeting transcripts and other audio recordings, you know how poor a media player Drive can be.

YouTube on Android TV just added the feature I've been wanting for years

YouTube on Android TV just added the feature I've been wanting for years

YouTube for Android TV was released nearly six years ago, in August of 2015, with one glaring omission: no playback speed controls. Over thirty releases or so, the feature was still nowhere to be seen, forcing us to watch videos at normal speeds. No slowing down if you want to grab all the details of a scene in slow-mo, no speeding up for videos of easy-going talkers or unrushed scenes. Until now, that is. If you open the YouTube app on your Android TV set, top box, or Chromecast with Google TV today, you should have the option — at least if the server gods are on your side.

[Update: Android too] YouTube adds 1.75x playback speed on the web

[Update: Android too] YouTube adds 1.75x playback speed on the web

I would have never thought that a single YouTube playback speed setting would be requested or would get noticed this much, but today I've learned that you can't make assumptions like this without researching them first. It seems that the 1.75x speed setting has been asked about, not once, not twice, not even thrice, but even more times, and when it showed up a few days ago on the YouTube desktop site, many users did indeed notice it.

Google Home is getting playback speed voice controls for podcasts and news

Google Home is getting playback speed voice controls for podcasts and news

Any podcast app worth its salt allows you to change the playback speed. People speak at different paces; some podcasters are agonizingly slow and articulate, others talk very fast and are impossible to understand if you don't speak their language (and even dialect) natively. That's why it's important to be able to set the playback speed to a convenient rate for you. Google Home appears to be getting this feature soon - possibly even now.
