        Would also be incredibly helpful to have a default setting - such that ALL podcasts could be played at 2X. This way we do not have to set every time we play a new podcast (or a new episode in the same series)

        Girlfriend wants new phone and he like my L920, but this function is important for her so she will buy android ... sad because we like WP ... please add this function

        The new WP 8.1 Podcasts app has this feature but I would like to see it modified a bit. Feedback I heard sums it up well... "I think the [1.5X, 1.5X (bold), 2X] speed control should be [1X, 1.5X, 2X]. It's consistent that way and I think a person is going to understand they can click the 1X... or they'll figure it out pretty quick."

        yes, yes, YES!!! Finally got 1.5X speed in Podcasts app in Windows Phone 8.1!! Now I'm completely happy about my WP, this was the only missing piece to make this phone completely AWESOME.

        2.5X is my preferred speed for most podcasts and audiobooks. Unfortunately Downcast on the iPhone only supports 2X or 3X but not 2.5X. Audible.com on iPhone supports 2.5X

        This is a total deal-breaker for me. Being relegated to listening to podcasts and audiobooks at 1X is unacceptable. Just got a Lumia Icon. But I will be going back to my dinky iPhone 4S (even though its way to small) because of this issue.

        This WAS a deal breaker for me.

        I now have a brand new Android phone. I prefer WP, but if this feature is still not available when I am due to upgrade my phone again, then then it will once again not be a WP.

        Just one more reason to got back to the iPhone. I have been VERY disappointed with the WP.

        This is a deal-breaker for me. Once Windows phone supports this I dump Android

        They dont know what a great feature this is. WMP has/had it!
        Besides 1x speed, they should add a 0.5x, a 1.5x, a 2.0x, a 2.5x, and a 3.0x speeds!

        Look back through forums, people have been requesting this since windows phone SEVEN. Here I am shopping a windows phone again, and I might have to skip it AGAIN and get another android. I want to love windows phone so much, but this is CRITICAL!!!

      • JeffJeff commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please add this feature! I'm contemplating going back to Android..

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please give us 2x playback speed for lectures and audiobooks! Currently, I have to speed them up with a separate program on my computer before loading them on my phone.

        Echo what everyone else in this thread is saying. I have been submitting feedback about this since wp7. Please add variable playback speed
