Netflix selectively tries out the feature on Android mobile phones, allowing users to speed 1.25 and 1.5 times through episodes of programming or movies and documentaries on the site Android police.

Because streaming media binge watchers are hard pressed to keep up with the latest shows, the feature would allow more media to be consumed, and in less time.

Apatow, producer of the romantic comedy series Love, who appears on the streaming network in his own stand-up, simply said & # 39; no & # 39; against the & # 39; variable playback speed & # 39 ;, which is already available on rival sites, including YouTube.

& # 39; No @Netflix no & # 39 ;, tweeted Apatow on Monday. & # 39; Don't let me call every director and maker on earth to fight you with this. Save me time & # 39; he threatened. & # 39; I will win, but it will take a lot of time & # 39 ;.

& # 39; Don't worry about our timing & # 39 ;, Apatow added bluntly.

Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul clearly told Netflix to & # 39; stop & # 39; in a tweet.

& # 39; There is NO WAY that @Netflix continues with this. That would mean that they have the art of everyone completely under control and destroy it. Netflix is ​​much better than that. Am I right in Netflix? & # 39; Paul wrote.

Director Brad Bird, behind The Incredibles and Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol, tweeted that it was another spectacularly bad idea and a new cut in the already burgeoning cinema experience.

& # 39; Why support and finance visions of filmmakers on the one hand and destroy the presentation of those films on the other ??? & # 39; he added.

If the feature is available to all Netflix subscribers, it means they can quickly go through popular programs, including Breaking Bad, House of Cards, Stranger Things, Orange is the new Black, Bojack Horseman and his new show, The Politician.

YouTube users have been able to speed up a broadcast, including audio, with steps from 25 percent to 100 percent for years.

The Android Police report on the Netflix feature contains a screenshot of the variable speeds set at 1.25 and 1.50 times faster, as well as 0.25 and 0.50 times slower, during a streaming broadcast of & # 39; The Standups & # 39 ;, a series directed by comedian Troy Miller, with standup strips.

Netflix confirmed that it was testing the new function.

& # 39; We are always experimenting with new ways to help members use Netflix & # 39 ;, said the streaming service in a statement to Android Police. & # 39; This test makes it possible to vary the speed at which people watch shows on their mobile & # 39 ;.

& # 39; As with any test, it cannot become a permanent function on Netflix & # 39 ;, the site added.
