Facebook have today rolled out a feature update to users, allowing video audio to be played out whilst you browse your news feed. Previously, users would need to click on the video in order to hear audio.

"As people watch more video on phones, they’ve come to expect sound when the volume on their device is turned on," said Facebook. "After testing sound on in News Feed and hearing positive feedback, we’re slowly bringing it to more people."

Good news is, audio still won't be heard if your phone is on silent.

The update also includes the feature to continue watching a video in the corner of your screen, whilst continuing to browse your news feed.

Um, no. If I've played a video in bed at night and wanted to hear the sound, it doesn't automatically follow that I want to automatically hear a video on the train at 7:30 in the morning when I'm browsing my feed.

Thanks for whatsapping us with this non-newsworthy news about a relic website.

Oh great- there's plenty of those annoying videos with the sound of a woman having an orgasm over it out there, and now you have no control over it I expect there will be more. So yeah, turn off auto play I think!

Don't understand why there's always hate when there's a Facebook post lol
yeah it can be the cause for many arguments ,divorces & bullying... :(
but I find the Facebook groups great especially the local ones and the buy/sell groups

What about those videos that have surprise orgasmic noises on them, guessing we will all get a bit red faced on the train a bit more often now! Poop
#18
it does get annoying when adverts auto-play and the noise is excruciatingly loud. I've started muting my tech until there's something i want to hear instead of being told what to hear

This is actually a decent feature, no need to open videos and plays them without sound, it's been like this for months for Beta users. Love it when people kick off when they don't actually use FB. Grow up fools.

Me too. The usual people like to feel superior by saying they don't use Facebook.
Facebook is what ever a user makes of it.
