Playback Rates

Updated 4 months ago by George Cox

Downcast supports several playback rates between 0.5x and 3x.

To jump to a specific playback rate - Tap and hold the playback speed button on the player view. This will present a list allowing you to choose the playback rate to jump to.

To cycle through playback rates - Tap and release the playback speed button on the player view. This will step through the configured playback rates one at a time. The playback rates that are cycled through can be configured in Downcast's settings both globally and per-podcast.

To configure the global playback rates to cycle through: More -> Settings -> Playback Speed -> Playback Speed Cycling Options

To configure the playback rates to cycle through for a particular podcast: Tap the Podcast -> Tap the Gear Icon -> Playback Speed -> Playback Speed Cycling Options
