Facebook recently introduced the video auto-play
feature - with it, instead of requiring you to tap the play button, videos automatically start playing as you stumble upon them in your feed. For many Facebook users out there, it's surely a very useful and intelligent feature, but we can imagine that there is also a good number of users who just can't develop a liking for their videos to be auto-played, and would be grateful if there's a way to revert things back to how they were.
Well, we're glad to tell those unhappy Facebookers that there is actually a pretty legitimate way off stopping videos from being auto-played, and even better - you can do this on both Android and iOS. Ready to show that auto-play feature the door? Follow the Android and iOS instructions below on how to disable it!
