Videos on Facebook got a whole lot louder as videos start playing sound automatically as you scroll through your feed. Previously, you could only hear video sound if you tapped on the video in your Facebook News Feed. Now, as long as your device isn’t on silent mode, sound will fade in and out as you scroll through the latest videos.

It might be a nice addition to some users, I don’t deny it, but only a few think that. I know that you must be looking for a way to stop Facebook autoplaying video and sound and you can be sure that I can help you.

You can obviously choose to mute the multimedia volume on the handset itself, but keep in mind that this will affect all apps and not just Facebook and I bet that this isn’t the option that you had in mind. I have a better suggestion for you, so keep on reading:

How to stop Facebook Autoplaying video and sound:

  1. Start by opening the Facebook app and logging in if you haven’t already;
  2. Up next, you have to tap the three-lined hamburger button in the upper right corner of the screen;
  3. Scroll down and tap “App Settings”;
  4. You will see a new option under General for ‘Videos in News Feed start with sound’. To disable it right away, you must simply toggle off the slider.

I think you can do this process easily. But if you have faced any problems, then you can comment below or contact me through the contact page. I am always here to help you!
