How to Disable Autoplay Videos in Play Store App

By default, the Google Play Store app automatically plays videos if you’re on a Wi-Fi connection.

If you don’t like it, you can turn it off. Here, I’m using Google Pixel 4a (Android 12).

Here’s how you can stop autoplay videos in Play Store:

Launch the Google Play Store app.

Hit your profile picture in the top right corner.

Tap Settings > Network preferences > Auto-play videos.

In the popup window, you’ll find these three options:

  • Auto-play videos at any time.
  • Auto-play videos over Wi-Fi only.
  • Don’t auto-play videos.

The first one plays videos automatically, regardless of your internet connection.

The second one automatically plays videos only over the Wi-Fi connection. It is the default option.

The third one stops automatic playback.

Select the third option, “Don’t auto-play videos,” and tap “Done.”

That’s it.
