How do I stop videos from playing automatically in my Feed on Facebook?

You can change your video autoplay settings at any time.
To change this setting on your Android phone:
  1. Tap menu in the top right of Facebook.
  2. Scroll down and tap Settings & privacy then tap Settings.
  3. Scroll down to Preferences and tap Media.
  4. Scroll down to Autoplay section, then tap to select from the following options:
    • On Mobile Data and Wi-Fi: Videos will always autoplay on this selection.
    • On Wi-Fi Only: Videos will only autoplay when your device is connected to Wi-Fi with this selection.
    • Never Autoplay Videos: Videos will never autoplay with this selection.
To help us improve the way you see videos on Facebook, you can give feedback on videos playing automatically in your Feed.
Note: If you don't see the Media settings on your Android phone, try updating the Facebook app.
Keep in mind, the autoplay setting only applies to videos. Reels will continue to autoplay after changing this setting.
