Disable Facebook’s automatic play feature in the iOS app

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.
