Facebook is quickly working towards becoming a serious contender as a destination for video. SmartTV apps with better video controls and a more video friendly UI (user interface) are just a couple of things they’re doing to be more video friendly. There’s another major change coming that will drive you nuts, I’m going to do you a favor and help you avoid it.
Facebook has announced that they’ll soon be rolling out video autoplay with audio on your timeline in the Facebook app. This means you’ll be bombarded with the first few seconds of sound from every video your lovely Facebook friends have posted. If you have already disabled autoplay for some reason (like to save data or battery) then you’re good to go. If not I’m here to help. The video below will walk you through a few simple steps to help you disable video autoplay on the Facebook app altogether. You’re welcome!
