Add playback speed in custom settings
It would be nice if the playback speed for each podcast could be found in the custom settings of the podcast. This would not only let me know what speed I have that podcast set at but would save a couple of clicks in adjusting the speed (depending on the screen I am starting at).
This feature has just been released
You can enable this in the app Settings/Player/Behavior
thank you this is awesome! works exactly like i would like it to.
your constant updates and improvements and listening to user feedback on top of having the most robust and customizable podcast app is why podcast addict is the best podcast app.

I want to be able to adjust the speed when NOT playing the podcast, not just when playing the podcast. It would be nice if it was included among other custom settings for each podcast.
the issue with the speed settings as they currently exist is that although the per podcast speed can be changed easily from the player, it is problematic to see and manage the speed of an individual podcast outside of when an episode of that podcast is playing.
so adding the speed setting for a podcast to its behavior customization settings allows a user to toggle its adherence to the global setting and modify the speed for that individual podcast whenever they like, not just while an episode is playing. and revert a podcast from a custom speed back to respecting global speed settings.
Thanks for that, I've done a bit of testing, and that does seem to work. Is there anywhere in the app where I can see what the default speed for a particular podcast is?
This feature already exists. You can change the playback speed from the player screen and the new selected speed will be the default one for the current podcast
+1 for this feature - I like my spoken word podcasts at 1.2 speed, so that is my default for the app. I have a few music/ambience podcasts, where I would like it at 1.0 speed. I would like for these podcasts to play these different speeds automatically, rather than having to remember to switch it down to 1.0 when a music podcast comes on.
The fact that this is already a capability in the app means that it should be relatively easy to add it to the list of custom settings for each podcast. There could be a checkbox for whether to use the app's master play speed, and if it's unchecked then another setting to customize the play speed for that podcast. It would also be a more intuitive place to put the setting. Over the years I've adjusted the play speed of a specific podcast in the player on many occasions when I actually intended to adjust the master play speed for all podcasts. Extremely frustrating while driving.
You can do so by opening the player screen and select the playback speed of your choice. The playback speed will only change for this podcast

I switched to this app from BeyondPod (which broke horribly with Android 8) and this is one thing I sorely miss. Some podcasts I want to play at 1.25x, while others (especially music-heavy ones) I want at normal speed. This would be the missing piece for me.

It would also allow setting the speed of podcasts while another podcast was playing.
