YT Premium 2x playback feature

Users can test this feature by opting for 2x playback option after long pressing any YouTube Premium sponsored video.

Earlier, to watch a YouTube video at 2x speed, a user needed to choose the option from video settings.

YouTube’s new feature seems to have inspired from TikTok’s playback feature where a user can long-press a video and select 2x speed from the list of options.

YouTube’s long-press 2x speed playback will be available till August 13.
