How To Turn off Video Streaming Volume In Facebook on Android

In February this year, Facebook has announced a new feature in which Facebook videos will start automatically playing with sound as the user will scroll through News Feed in his profile. Previously users have to tap on the video to enable volume but now they will hear the volume when they will scroll to the video. The sound will fade as users’ scroll away from the video. Users are finding this feature annoying as it makes their Facebook browsing noisy.

Facebook does offer option to turn off video streaming volume. This post will explain the feature in context with Android devices. So here is what you need to follow:

  • The simplest way is to put your phone on silent mode. Facebook video feature works according to your phone settings. If you put your Android device on silent mode, you will not hear the video sound autoplay in Facebook.
  • Another option is to control your phone’s volume. Hold the volume button down to turn it off.
  • If you want a permanent solution for video streaming sound, here is what Facebook offers:
    • Open the Facebook Application.
    • Tap on the three horizontal lines at the top right corner.
    • Scroll down to ‘Help & Settings’ section.
    • Tap on ‘App Settings’ option.
    • Look for ‘Videos in News Feed Start With Sound’ option and move the slider next to it to the left side (turn off.)
    • You are done.

You just need to change this option once and you won’t hear sound for autoplay videos. If you want to listen to the video, just tap on it.

How to Stop Videos from playing automatically in Facebook News Feed

Along with turning off sound, you can also stop the automatic streaming of videos in Facebook News Feed. There are options to adjust video autoplay settings on mobile data and Wi-Fi connection, on Wi-Fi only or never autoplay videos.

Follow these steps on your Android phone:

  • Open the Facebook app
  • Tap on the three horizontal lines at the top right corner.
  • Scroll down and tap ‘App Settings’ option.
  • Tap on ‘Autoplay.’
  • Choose ‘Never Autoplay Videos’ or others if you want.
Important: If you can’t see the ‘Autoplay’ option in ‘App Settings’, log out and log in again. Issue will be resolved.

 

Videos will not autoplay when you scroll down to your Faceboook News Feed. If you want to see them, tap them to play.

  7. Now, under “Logon Information”, you need to enter your complete email address and password.
  8. Make sure that your check the box next to “Require logon using Secure Password Authentication”. After that click the “More Settings” button.
  9. Go to “Outgoing Server” tab and check the box next to “My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication”. Now go to “Advanced” tab.
  10. Under “Advanced” tab set the value of “IMAP” port to “993” and “SMTP” port to “465 or 587”. And make sure you select “SSL” for the type of encrypted connection for both “IMAP” and “SMTP”. Click “OK” and you will see that Outlook is performing an email test automatically.
  11. If everything would have been configured precisely, you will notice green checkmarks in the window. If not, review the changes you made.
  12. However, if you want to use POP3 setting instead of IMAP, you can do that by making certain changes in the “POP and IMAP Account Settings
  13. Set “Incoming mail server” to “mail.yahoo.com” and “Outgoing mail server” to “smtp.mail.yahoo.com”. And, make sure you change “Account Type” to “POP3”.
  14. And under “More Settings”, set “Incoming Server (POP3)” port to 995 and “Outgoing Server (SMTP)” port to 465 or 587.
  15. Make sure you check the box next to “This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL)” and also select SSL as the “type of encrypted connection”.
  16. Also, make sure you check the box next to “My outgoing server requires authentication” under “Outgoing Server” tab.
  17. Like in IMAP, here also Outlook will perform an email text automatically.
