- Now you can control playback speed! Watch a TED Talk at half speed or, if you’re in a rush, double the speed.
- We also just launched dual subtitles! You can display your preferred subtitles with English subtitles at the same time. Or, if your preferred subtitles are not available yet, set English as your default with fallback subtitles.

26 Jul 2018 Google Play Release Update
We’ve updated the player controls in the notification drawer to make it easier for you to play talks when your screen is locked. Hope you've been enjoying background playback!
12 Jul 2018 Google Play Release Update
We have a very exciting update: talks will now continue to play in the background when your device is locked or when the app is minimized, so you can continue to listen to talks with the screen off. You can turn this off in Settings.
Also, we've fixed some issues with rotating the video player, and are now displaying subtitles above the controls bar.
Finally, we've optimized the video player code, so if you see any issues, please report them to [email protected]
