Google Chrome will finally block autoplay videos with sound in the next update

After blocking annoying Ads, Google is working to make the internet a better experience by blocking autoplay videos with sounds. With the upcoming version 66 update, Google will finally block autoplay videos with the sound turned on by default.

Google Chrome will identify if the video has the sound turned on by default or not and if it does, the browser will block the video from playing until the user either interacts with the video or has viewed media on the website before. This will finally stop websites from abusing the autoplay videos which, to be honest, are annoying for everyone. Google will roll out this feature with the upcoming Chrome update and if you want to try it right now, you can head to Chrome’s website and download Google Chrome Beta for your PC.
