1 comment :

It has been noted that with the continuous changes going around on Facebook the popularity of the platform even got a hike when videos got implemented on it. Well! As we know that every coin has two sides thus, where most of us loved the feature of videos but, not everyone appreciated this auto-playing video feature in Facebook. There is a big problem for those who have limited data plan but, for those who have unlimited data plan, auto-playing videos are no major concern. Initially, where they have launched playing the videos on mute now, they have turned the volume on now. One thing that is good with this auto-play feature is that once, you scroll through the news feed the volume will be up for the videos you are immediately at and once you get past then, the sound will fade away.

This auto-play video sound was not the only update that Facebook announced it also updated the feature of playing the vertical videos on full screen, updated thumbnail based progress bar etc. Although this Auto-playing video feature is great but personally I am not a fan of the auto-playing sound of the video.

There is a way to disable Facebook Auto-playing video sound. Below are the steps to disable the Facebook auto-play video sound:
