Facebook is currently doing an auto audio to stream alongside its auto play videos, so you might want to mute your phone while browsing at Facebook at work.
According to the stats, Facebook has seen a 66 percent rise in the average daily video views per user, however, half of that time is spent viewing the video without sound. This has led to Facebook experimenting with auto playing sound just to see if it is something people would enjoy, while the company will monitor feedback.
This new testing will auto play as you scroll to a video which auto plays, so you might want to keep your phone on silent. Arriving as Facebook continues its expansion of Live video, audio-auto play appears to be the social network’s latest effort to drive up video engagement, and the ad revenue it raises, to lure users away from the allure of YouTube and Twitch and other popular sites for streaming video.
Dont forget to mute your phone!
