I watch a lot of instructional youtube videos and often change playback speed to slow motion. This is not available when chromecasting from youtube ios app. Not an error or bug, it just wasn’t added as a feature in development. Please add.

iOS 12.1.4

Please add variable speed playback to iPhone YouTube app

Agree with OP. Please add speed control to YouTube in Chromecast. It's weird that even now we can't control the speed of YouTube when casting from an Android phone; we have to have the YouTube app open, where the playback speed setting is normally available; for it to not be available when casting seems like a fixable issue.

I'm on an android and this feature is also still not supported.

Yes, I spent ages trying to figure out how to cast and also tweak playback speeds... only to find out it's not possible on the app, for Android or iOS.. Shame as this can be handy for slowing down instructional vids as has been noted, as well as essential for speeding up music tracks (which is what I use the majority of the time). Also, if this will be included on the app, think about storing the speed preference so it always applies on playback, to the saved / fav videos (saved to profile). THANK YOU GOOGLE DEVELOPERS!

I agree, I usually watch instructional videos at higher speed and can only do it on small screens (android mobile/tablet) or on a computer currently. I would like the ability to watch them on a TV screen.

This is a feature i use daily, to speed up almost all youtube content. I'm shocked and deeply disappointed to see it missing in cast mode.
I'm an Android user.
