Google has announced it will begin automatically blocking auto-playing videos within its Chrome web browser from next year.
It's not a secret that nowadays our browsing experience can be extremely frustrating due to those autoplay videos which suddenly pop up on the page and don't want to go away, even if you try to scroll down. Auto play will also be limited If the site has been added to the home screen or if the user has frequently played media on the site before. This muting option will persist between browsing sessions, enabling users to customise when audio will play.
The autoplay removed in January 2018? In all actuality, however, that implies in the event that you've effectively made a particular move to square autoplay recordings on portable, you may really observe them play all the more regularly because of the progressions in case you're not watchful. Some sites are worse than others in that respect (looking at you, CNN, blasting videos at full volume with each refresh!), but Google has a solution to this first-world problem. The changes will also let users have greater control over video playback, enable content providers to use autoplay without complicated workarounds, and make the behavior of desktop and mobile browsers more consistent.

Google now offers an autoplay block in Chrome for Android, which attempts to stop autoplay videos from eating up data and battery life.
Google is trying to fix this issue in the Chrome 64 update, which will give users more control over audio by ensuring that the autoplay is only allowed when either there is no sound or the user is interested in the media.
