How Do You Slow Down the Speed of a Video on Camera Roll?

Have you ever captured a video on your phone, and later on, realized that it was too fast-paced? Or maybe you want to emphasize a particular moment in the video by slowing it down.

Whatever your reason may be, slowing down the speed of a video is actually quite simple. In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through exactly how to do that in Camera Roll.

Step 1: Open the Video in Camera Roll

First things first, open the Camera Roll app on your phone and select the video that you want to slow down. Once you’ve found it, tap on it to open it.

Step 2: Tap Edit

Once you have opened the video, tap on the “Edit” button located at the top right corner of your screen.

Step 3: Tap and Hold the Slider

After tapping “Edit,” look for a small slider located at the bottom of your screen. This slider allows you to adjust various settings such as brightness and exposure. However, for this tutorial, we’re going to focus on adjusting the speed of our video.

To slow down your video, tap and hold the slider with two fingers and drag it towards the left side of your screen. You should see a turtle icon appear just above the slider indicating that your video is now playing at a slower pace.

Step 4: Preview Your Video

After adjusting the speed of your video, tap on “Done” located at the bottom right corner of your screen. This will save your changes and bring you back to Camera Roll’s main screen.

To preview your newly slowed-down video, simply tap on it once again and press play.


  • If you want to slow down only a particular section of your video rather than its entirety, use the trim tool before adjusting its speed.
  • Slowing down a video may reduce its quality. Therefore, it’s best to avoid slowing down videos that already have poor resolution.
  • Experiment with different speeds until you find one that suits your needs.


And that’s it! By following these simple steps, you can easily slow down the speed of your video in Camera Roll. Whether you’re creating a slow-motion masterpiece or just trying to capture a moment in more detail, this easy-to-use feature can help you achieve your desired results.
