You can adjust the playback speed for audiobooks using OverDrive for Android, Chromebook, iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch), and Windows 8 (and up).
By default, the playback speed is set to 100% (or 1x).
Note: You'll need Android 4.1+ to use this feature on an Android device.
How to adjust playback speed
- Tap a downloaded audiobook from your app bookshelf.
- Tap the Play speed icon. The Play speed icon looks like a speedometer in the audiobook player.
- Select a playback speed from the options.
Note: The image below shows the Play speed icon in OverDrive for iOS, but it looks similar in OverDrive for Android, Chromebook, and Windows 8 (and up).
