How to never autoplay videos in Facebook mobile app?

In the Facebook mobile app, autoplaying videos can be a nuisance, especially if you have limited data or find the sudden sound of a video starting to be disruptive. However, there is an easy way to prevent videos from automatically playing in the Facebook mobile app. Here is a step-by-step guide to help you with this setting:

  1. Open your Facebook app and go to your profile by tapping on your profile picture or the three horizontal lines at the bottom right corner of the screen.
  2. Once you are on your profile, tap on the "Settings & Privacy" option, usually located towards the bottom.
  3. Next, tap on the "Settings" option.
  4. Now, scroll down until you find the "Media and Contacts" section. Tap on it.
  5. In the "Media and Contacts" section, you will see an option called "Autoplay." Tap on it.
  6. Here, you have the option to customize how videos autoplay. If you want to completely disable autoplaying videos, simply select the "Never Autoplay Videos" option.
  7. If you prefer to have some level of control over autoplay settings, you can choose to allow videos to autoplay only when connected to Wi-Fi by selecting the "On Wi-Fi Connections Only" option.
  8. Additionally, you can also choose whether videos should start with sound or not by toggling the switch next to the "Videos in News Feed Start With Sound" option.
  9. For Facebook Stories, you can toggle the switch next to the "Stories Start With Sound" option to enable or disable sound autoplay for stories specifically.
  10. Lastly, if you want to disable default sounds and music that play in stories, you have the option to toggle the switch next to the "Default Sound and Music" option.

By following these steps, you can personalize the video autoplay settings in the Facebook mobile app to suit your preferences. Whether you choose to completely disable autoplay or customize it to your liking, this feature provides you with greater control over your browsing experience within the app.
