What are the differences between variable fonts and static fonts?

Can anyone please help me in pointing out some differences between variable fonts and static fonts.

Variable fonts were expected to make downloading web fonts faster having the weights and variants in one file. They were also expectable help switch variants context sensitively (example, thicker fonts when background is dark, larger x-height variant when used in smaller sizes). But technology hasn’t kept apace and so the concept hadn’t found many takers, despite the support pledged by technology bigwigs.
