How to disable Auto-audio for Facebook Video. A while ago, Facebook made the videos in your news feed start automatically. It was terrible. Fortunately, Facebook has given users a way to turn off auto-play for videos.
A new Facebbok feature is rolling out for users and it will be auto-play videos with sound. Previously, users had to tap on a video to get the sound. Now, the videos will automatically play with sound.
