Google TV Chromecast - YouTube Playback Speed Control MISSING

When viewing YouTube videos using Google TV Chromecast it is no longer possible to use the video playback speed option. The icon for the control has disappeared, basically overnight.

What happened?

Is this temporary?

If not, I suggest there are a large number of people who want the speed control option restored.

Thank you.

Hi there,

I saw some similar reports about the speed control missing. I will escalate this to the Community Specialist team for Chromecast and see if they can offer any info.

Thanks for reporting.

This happened to me on Sony bravia android tv as well. So frustrating google. I will stop paying for their premium if this feature does not return. 

Same the whole reason I got premium was to watch YouTube and learn faster with the speed button

Same here.  If they are cutting features I’m less inclined to pay for premium.

Every time Google removes some good features like this.

All.of a sudden Google removed playback speed option from youtube.

Still I donot Understand what is the problem with that option for google.

Actually it is very helpful for many users like us.

Hey there,

 

I was in contact with the Google Chromecast team, and I was informed that the option for playback speed was missing for a few days, but has since returned. Is anyone still experiencing the missing Playback controls? Please let me know, I'd be happy to look into it!


Best regards,
Jeran

I have 2 Nvidia Shield TV's - one is a 2017 and the other is a 2019. They are both running the YouTube app version 2.16.03. The 2019 has the speed control option but the 2017 does not.

For me it is working again on latest Chromecast 

Hi Ben, did you do anything to it? Update software, app, reset etc, or it just worked automatically?

Just worked again without doing something

Hi folks,

 

Sorry for the late response. Let's check on this further.

 

Glad to hear that it is working now for you, Benjamin81 and thanks for keeping us in the loop.

 

For the others, please try to restart your Chromecast and uninstall and reinstall the YouTube app. Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks,

Jennifer

I have updated the TV app, uninstalled YouTube updates, factory reset, on my Sony Bravia TV. But at this date (10th March), the speed control has NOT returned
