Twitter launches auto-playing videos in user streams

Twitter today announced a new feature that you might want to disable right away.

The company is now enabling videos to auto-play in user streams on their web and mobile apps.

Audio would be mute by default and users would be able to click on the videos to turn the sound on.

The company added:

Remember, you have ultimate control through your settings. You can choose to revert to the previous click-to-play experience all the time or simply have videos autoplay only when you’re connected to wifi. If you’re somewhere with high data rates or you have low bandwidth on your device, we’ll opt you out of autoplay to avoid unexpected charges or slow performance; so you’ll continue to see videos as click-to-play.
