Youtube App has playback speed on only some devices?

I know I used to be able to adjust playback speed (watch videos at 1.5 speed) on all Roku devices that I had.

I no longer see the option on an older gen 1 roku, a roku inside a 2017 TCL TV, and even on a TIVO stick.

However, I still have the ability on my ROKU 4k Stick. I have refused to update it, just in case.

Anyone know anything about this?

Re: Youtube App has playback speed on only some devices?

Hi @gabbar08,

A warm welcome to the Roku Community!

Kindly be informed that all the recent features with channels on the Roku platform will be available when the Roku device is updated. If you wish to have the adjust playback speed feature on your Roku TCL TV, it's recommended to perform a system update, and it has the benefit of all other recent features of channels and Roku OS. You can update the system by navigating to Settings > System > System Update.

Keep us posted on what you find out.

All the best,

Takashi O.
