Stop AutoPlaying Videos on Facebook

The social giant Facebook has started the “AutoPlay” feature on Facebook. Now, every video will play automatically. No need to click on the play button of Facebook videos. I think, you don’t like this feature. Because, we lose a huge amount of bandwidth. This auto play feature makes slow our surfing speed. Sometimes, we are not interested to watch every video on Facebook. I think, playing videos on demand is the best. Because, it reduces internet data consumption.

Let’s stop the AutoPlay Videos on Facebook
