Facebook allow videos in the news feed automatically play sound
Facebook allows the videos to play automatically in the newsfeed soon, with the sound on playback. Until now it was so that users sound manually had to convert.
That writes Facebook in a blog. The company tested the feature for a long time and has now decided that, available to everyone.
The sound will “slowly rise” as the video comes into view, and then just slowly fade away as users along the video scroll. If the smartphone of a user in silent mode, no sound will be played.
If users don’t want the sound to be played automatically, the function can also be turned off.
In addition, Facebook announced that previews of videos from now on are larger on mobile devices and videos in a small screen can be displayed so that the user can scroll while a video look, much like that in the app of YouTube also.
