Google Chrome to Disable Autoplay Videos with Sound in 2018

The occasions are plenty when you end up being annoyed by an autoplay video that starts making noises of its own, while you are still busy browsing through multiple tabs.

Browsers have come a long way since the time of Shockwave and Flash. After getting rid of Flash player altogether due to security reasons, the developers are moving further into the world of intuitive browsing where users are not annoyed regularly due to ads and browsers.

You can use an ad block to disable ads and enjoy a relaxed experience reading through the content you love the most. Later, Google Chrome and other browsers introduced a volume icon. It made it easier to identify which is the one tab that is making all the fuss and mute it individually if you want to.

Taking it a step further, Google Chrome will soon disable all autoplay videos that have sound in it by 2018. The new update with Chrome 64 is expected to be rolled out in the month of January next year. When it does, it can automatically which websites are filled with videos that run on their own.

It is such a nuisance because these videos can take up your bandwidth for no reason and will also emit sounds on your headphones or speakers, making it an annoying distraction that you just don’t need. Google Chrome 63 beta is in progress now and after a couple of months of testing, the stable version will be rolled out in Chrome 64.
