Easy Ways to Disable Video Autoplay on Facebook Apps

How to Disable Video Autoplay on Facebook Apps – The Facebook application is a very important social networking application and is also very popular in the world. You can get information about your friends anytime and anywhere. Besides that, you can still view someone’s profile, leave comments, send pictures, download images and many other features. But this time out of the many features that Facebook has, I will give tips about one of the features that was recently launched by one of these very popular applications.

And starting from last month when I opened the Facebook application, as soon as I scrolled through the homepage, there were so many statuses, news, photos, videos from hundreds of posts shared by Facebook friends, but this time the video that I saw seemed to have a new feature. So every time we pass a video and we stop at the video, the video we are currently viewing will automatically run by itself without us having to click first.

And apparently after I searched for information about it, I just realized that recently the Facebook application launched a feature that supports videos. And those features are video autoplay. So if this feature is active then automatically the video that we see at that time will also be run automatically without us having to click first.
This feature has a fairly large advantage for those who upload videos, so they can get a large number of views because of this autoplay feature, but if you look at the shortcomings, the autoplay feature for those of us who are categorized as users will definitely experience a bit of waste of internet quota. considering the data traffic sucked from this automatically running video even though we as users have no intention of watching the video.
Indeed, by default if you currently download or update the Facebook application, autoplay will automatically activate by itself. But take it easy here, Facebook makes choices for its users, so users are given the choice or freedom to activate this autoplay feature.
