How to Stop Facebook and Twitter Autoplay

By default, Facebook and Twitter autoplay videos. If you are not a fan of it, then you can stop those auto-playing videos, and it is just a minute of work.

Without further ado, let’s see the steps to do this task on both PC and Android.

Note: You have to change the autoplay settings separately for PC and app. For instance: you have turned off autoplay on the Twitter web (PC). However, it will not stop autoplay on the Twitter app for Android. If you do not want autoplay on the Twitter app, then you have to change it on the app.
