A few months ago we received word that the video autoplay feature was coming to the Google Play Store. Now, thanks to Android Police we know that the feature should be launched soon. The update was originally scheduled for September, but it looks like Google is getting to it right now.
Since its redesign a few months ago, the Google Play Store has seen some pretty significant usability improvements. It added dark mode support in Android 10, it announced future support for an incognito mode, and now it offers a new rewards program. Adding automatic autoplay to the Play Store isn't necessarily a step back, but it definitely won't see the same fanfare as many of its other recent updates have.

If you are someone who doesn't like videos that play automatically in the browser, you probably won't like it in the Play Store . Thankfully, it looks like Google is also adding the ability to disable it. Once you receive the update, you should be able to do so by opening the Google Play Store and navigating to Settings and then automatically playing videos. Here you will be able to select either "Auto-play videos at any time", "Auto-play videos via Wi-Fi only" or "Don & # 39; t play videos."
Video autoplay feature does not have I do not come to the Play Store on our devices yet so we have not been able to test it yet. Once done, you better believe that many of us will disable it as soon as we can.
