How to change play back speed for music and podcasts

August 1, 2012
Do you wanna play music twice as fast or twice as slow on your iPhone? Do you wanna listen to lectures on your iPhone a bit quicker than how long it actually took to save you time? Then this guide has been made for you. I have provided a tutorial on converting your song into a podcast to change playback speed.

It's really easy when it comes to podcasts and audio books. All you have to do is tap the 2x button near the top right corner directly beneath the music slider. A screen shot is available below.



But what if it's a song that you want to change the playback speed for? Ok that's when it requires your computer. The process involves converting your song into a podcast.

1. Launch up iTunes on your computer whether it's a Mac or a PC.
2. Right click on the song or album or playlist...  and choose 'Get info'



3. You might get a warning saying that 'Are you sure you want to edit information for multiple items?' Just click on 'Yes'.
4. A window will come up with 4 tabs at the top. Click on the tab that says 'Options'.
5. Change the media kind from Music to Podcast then click ok.


Now your song is saved as a podcast. You will need to re-sync your iPhone with iTunes whether wirelessly or with a cable. If you have wireless syncing set up then it should happen automatically overnight. Now when you launch your music or podcasts app you will find that your song is saved as a podcast. Just tap the 2x button and enjoy double speed! If you need any help, feel free to ask.
