As part of a new test, Twitter has developed a new option that lets users control the playback speed of both video and voice tweets in the app.
There is a range of speed options that you can choose from and set for audio and video clips. By using these options, you can speed up audio or video content, or when you want to observe some content in a slower speed, you can do that too.
The playback speed control option has been in testing for the past few months and was first spotted in September last year by reverse engineering expert Jane Manchun Wong, who shared the news with people on Twitter.

The functionality is available to users of Android and Twitter Web only for now, and is expected to be released for iOS soon.
Twitter has developed the playback speed control option based on user feedback that suggested the ability to have variable speed options, which is what users of all social media apps have desired, considering how people’s collective attention span has reduced. Therefore, the option would likely be appreciated by most Twitter users. Twitter is also currently working on upgrading its still image quality to 4K, which may also be available soon.
