Okay, straight up we’ll admit it – we hate change. Especially when it comes to social media.

But we know we’re not alone… don’t even try to deny it!

So here’s some news that will have you inwardly groaning, because Facebook is trialling autoplaying videos – with the sound ON.

While videos currently play automatically in our Newsfeeds, the volume is on mute. The trial completely changes that.

According to Mashable, since Tuesday the social giant has been testing how a select group of Aussie users react to the change.

The good news is sound will only play if your phone’s volume is up.


Facebook says the trial is one of several that aim to “improve the video experience for people on Facebook”.

According to the network, around 50 per cent of video plays are with the sound off.

Does having the sound automatically play bother you?
