Pocket Casts features three types of optional audio effects: Playback speed, Trim silence and Volume boost.
You can find this action in the player toolbar options which can be customized to include the four most used actions in the toolbar and the rest are only a tap away.
To access audio effects
- While playing an episode, tap the mini player
- Select the audio effects icon
Choosing between effects
Slow down or speed up podcasts from anywhere between 0.5x to 3x. Playing at 2x reduces a 60 minute episode to 30 minutes.
Trim silences from audio without altering the cadence of the host.
You can now choose how aggressive you want your silence trimming to be:
- Mild (default when turned on)
- Mad Max
Increases the volume of voices, while reducing background noise.
By default audio effects settings will be applied globally. To change audio effects on a per-podcast basis, go to the settings for that podcast and set them.
To see how much time audio effects have saved you, open 👤 Profile > Stats.
