Facebook Tests Video Autoplay
Today Facebook tested video autoplay, but it’s not necessarily bad news for users.
This new autoplay feature only applies to videos uploaded by individuals, bands and musicians.
It has been rolled out today and will be tested by a random group of users. We can’t expect this to go into full effect until late October at the earliest.
Some are regarding this as the end for Facebook, since the next logical step is video ads. Having received a massive amount of opposition, Facebook is unlikely to test video ads that autoplay in the near future.
