Have you noticed Facebook silently play videos in your Facebook newsfeed while you scroll down? Basically, Facebook has turned on auto play videos in their default mode for the desktop users. However, you can easily choose to set autoplay on or off for the Facebook videos showing in your newsfeed. Mobile users might set Facebook videos auto play function on for the WiFi connections only.
