Facebook for iOS update brings video auto play to the app

Facebook for iOS received an update that will now allow videos to automatically play on your News Feed once you scroll by them on your iOS screen. The update brings Facebook for iOS to version 6.8. The automatic video playing cannot be turned off, but you can make some adjustments. One good piece of news is that while the video will play no matter what, by default the video is mute...

Glad it works and maybe IOS users will enjoy FB autoplay eating up their data. The option for autoplay on wifi only on android Galaxy S4 does not work as advertised. Uninstalled this pos app from my phone. To hell with them. It's only a matter of time till advertisements will spring before your eyes all playing automatically.

Hasn't this update been available for a while now? I don't really enjoy the update because when you start the video then it'll start off from where it loaded until, forcing you to rewind to the beginning. Also, it's a bit annoying now that when you press the screen anywhere other than near the load bar then it'll automatically pause.
