YouTube offers a range of playback speeds, including 0.25x, 0.5x, 0.75x, 1x, 1.25x, 1.5x, and even 2x. Depending on the nature of the content, playback speeds can vary from one video to another.
YouTube has previously disclosed that viewers watching content on larger screens like TVs and gaming consoles tend to spend the most time watching at 1x speed, which is the normal playback speed. Conversely, on mobile devices, viewers tend to watch content for longer periods at 2x and 1.5x speed.
This observation aligns with the context of mobile usage, where viewers are more likely to be on the go or in a hurry, compared to the relaxed viewing experience often associated with larger screens such as TVs.
