Personally, I want my news feed to be a bit quiet. That's why I used to completely turn off auto-play videos in Facebook to browse through the news feed with the peace of mind. Till now the Facebook news feed videos used to play only when you tapped on them. But that's going to change. The videos will now start playing automatically as soon as you scroll through your news feed.

So, the next time you go to check out your news feed, videos from your friends and other sources will welcome you loudly. The sound of the videos will fade in and out as you browse through the feed. Don't want the videos to play automatically? Follow this quick guide to disable sound from the Facebook news feed on your iPhone and computer.
