These days we have another problem occurring which is very common and annoying to our facebook users. That annoying problem is the auto play videos and sound while scrolling down in newsfeed section. This feature is mostly irritating for many users and even in android, and apple phone’s app this feature is enabled. Here we are trying to solve this problem for you.
Facebook usually brings new features for their customers and last August facebook was testing its new feature which was auto playing videos with sound, before this feature was launched facebook videos were only auto played without sound while scrolling down newsfeed and audio was started only when you had clicked the video properly to watch. But now in this new update which has already came out , audio from the video will fade in and out as you scroll down or up through newsfeed.
There are now two methods to solve this issue, the first method is very easy but also annoying for some users as well. Because in this method the user has to turn off the phone sound, multimedia sound totally while using facebook so that the videos on facebook while scrolling don’t disturb you or the nearby people to you.
Secondly, the method is through option that is available in Facebook IOS and android app settings for “ Videos in News Feed Start With Sound”.
Step 1. Open the Facebook Android app and open the Settings menu. To do this, tap the icon with three horizontal lines toward the top right of your News Feed (not the icon with three horizontal lines and a silhouette; this opens Facebook Chat).
Step 2. When you are in the Settings menu you’ll be able to see a link to your profile page, friends, events, photos, pages you manage and more.
Step 3. Scroll down to the Help & Settings section and choose the top entry: App Settings.
Step 4. Under General settings look for and select Auto-play. Video Auto-play gives three options: On Mobile Data and Wi-Fi Connections, On Wi-Fi Connections Only and Never Auto-Play Videos. Choose the latter if you don’t want videos to ever auto played on your Facebook, choose On Wi-Fi Connections Only if you don’t like video auto playing because you are worried about going over your mobile’s data
Now we have discussed it for iphone and ipad users to change their settings regarding this issue.
The same Auto-play menu is found in iOS as it is in Android. Tap on the downward triangle at the top of the News Feed and choose Settings, then Videos and Photos. Choose Auto-Play and select from one of the three options: On Mobile Data and Wi-Fi Connections, On Wi-Fi Connections Only, or Never Auto-play Videos.
