Google Chrome for Android could bring back the option to stop Autoplay
The mainstream browsers on the desktop have already supported settings to prevent websites from automatically playing videos, because sometimes the automatic playing of videos when opening a web page may cause interference.
In particular, the videos played by certain websites including audio content and background music may cause embarrassment to users, so now most websites are prohibited from automatically playing.
Of course, Google Chrome also maintains common video websites and news information websites. These whitelist websites can be played automatically but users can also set them.
On the mobile terminal, the Android version of Google Chrome has also supported blocking the automatic playback of videos, but it is puzzling that Google seems to have removed this feature some time ago.
A Reddit user found from the code of the Google Chrome browser project that Chrome seems to be reintroducing the blocking of automatic video playback for Android users while providing multiple options.
Users can set the default settings of Google Chrome when playing audio and video according to their own needs, or use the whitelist settings maintained by Google Chrome.
All websites can automatically play all content, all websites can automatically play content, but content with audio is automatically muted by default.
The user-specified website allows all content to be automatically played, and the user-specified website prevents all content from being automatically played and does not allow any website to automatically play any content.
It usually takes one to two months for the new function to go from the canary version to the official version, so it should not reach the official version channel for a short time if the automatic playback feature is blocked.
In addition, these options are not provided on the desktop version of Google Chrome. The desktop version currently uses Google to maintain a whitelist and control exception sites by users.
