Last week, I showed you how to disable Facebook’s automatic play feature when using Facebook in the browser. However, this annoying feature is also automatically enabled in the iOS (and I assume Android) apps. Luckily, they can be disabled there, too. Here’s how:
- Open Settings (that’s from the Home screen, not from Facebook), then scroll down to Facebook
- Go to Settings
- Under Video, go to Auto-Play
- Set the setting you want
The app offers three settings, On, Wi-Fi only and Off.
