- Some Android-owning Netflix app users discovered a new setting to change the playback speed of programming available on Netflix, slowing it down to 0.5x or 0.75x speed or speeding it up to 1.25x or 1.5x speed.
- A Netflix spokesperson confirmed they were running this feature as a test, with no guarantee it would become permanent.
I am honestly praising @Netflix as a company. Don’t listen to the media. Rumors are a funny thing. I love Netflix. Always have. Always will. This simply can not be true. That is all. No way will they destroy the art they have on their platform. Plain and simple. 🎥 https://t.co/uvxWMpeqhx— Aaron Paul (@aaronpaul_8) October 28, 2019
No @Netflix no. Don’t make me have to call every director and show creator on Earth to fight you on this. Save me the time. I will win but it will take a ton of time. Don’t fuck with our timing. We give you nice things. Leave them as they were intended to be seen. https://t.co/xkprLM44oC— Judd Apatow (@JuddApatow) October 28, 2019

Should Netflix make playback speed selection an option?
