How to slow down a YouTube video
If you want to slow down a YouTube video, you can do so by adjusting the Playback speed in the Settings Menu. Click the three dots (on mobile) or cogwheel (on desktop) and adjust the Playback speed to 0.75x to 0.25x to slow down the video.
To quickly move 10 seconds back or forth in a video, simply double-tap on the left or right of your phone screen.
