This week, Google took autoplay videos to the homepage of the YouTube app. Whether you think this is a good idea, it is besides that, because the function is here and there is nothing we can do about it.

But Google gave us mercy and at least allowed us to turn off autoplay on YouTube . Also, you may not know that you can also turn off autoplay on YouTube while watching videos, so another video won't start playing when your current video is over.
To turn off autoplay for YouTube in both situations.
How to turn off autolayout from YouTube even when watching a video
Step 1: Open the YouTube app. If this is the first time you open it then the autoplay rollout you may see a notification like the one at the bottom of my screen:
Step 2: If you see the message, you can either hit "Capture it" and it will go away, or click "Settings" and it will take you to the area where you can turn off autoplay from YouTube. For those of you who received the message, press "Settings" and skip two paragraphs. For those of you who did not click, click on your avatar icon in the upper right corner of the website.
Step 3: Once you have clicked on your avatar icon you will be taken to your account page. Your may look a little different if you do not subscribe to YouTube Red, but similar options will be on your site. Turn on the "Settings" link.
Step 4: When you are on the setup page, it is quite obvious what to do next. Raise the "Autoplay" option.
Step 5: Here you can turn off autoplay from YouTube. The first option on the list is to check if YouTube plays another video after you have watched one or not. I personally do not like this feature, so I have it off.
The second option is how to turn off autoplay on YouTube on the website. Cannot switch, but press the text and you will see this message box:
Notes: "Always On" is the default option. If you select "Wi-Fi Only", videos will be played automatically on the website but not if you have a cellular data transfer. Autoplaying video saves bandwidth, which is one of the leading complaints about the feature in general, so this option is likely to spoil many opponents.
Of course, the last option is to completely turn off autoplay from YouTube. If that's what you're looking for, continue and choose it.
And that's it! While the autoplay feature may not be your cup of tea, good on Google to allow us to shut it down. Let's keep our fingers crossed that it doesn't remove the option anywhere along the line.
