The fadeTo() method of jQuery helps to fade out the respective element to a particular level of specified opacity. Fade here means that the specified element will get lighter and lighter until it reaches the specified value of opacity. This method will not make the selected element hidden. It will just make its display fade out. This method again helps to add various similar kinds of effects on the website for the user making the webpage more interactive and dynamic.

$(selector).fadeTo(speed, opacity, easing, callback);

The speed as a parameter here indicates the speed of the elements that get faded out. It can be specified as – slow, fast, normal, or even in milliseconds. The default value of the speed is normal.
