Google is known for playing around with the new features in its products and YouTube is the latest one. Autoplay feature that was initially taken into practice by Facebook to automatically play the videos in the app. Google is also testing the Autoplay feature in its YouTube app. However, some users like the feature to enjoy hassle-free video playing whereas others find it quite annoying.

Google is experimenting with the YouTube app in order to integrate the autoplay feature in it. In YouTube app, while scrolling down the home screen the video on the top of the screen will play automatically without any audio and subtitles will appear to compensate for that. Only one video will play at a time while other videos visible on the screen will remain still.

In case you don't find the autoplay feature that much of enjoyable in the Youtube app you can turn it off from the app’s setting. The feature can also be put on a setting that enables it to work only on the Wifi network to save cellular data. The company is testing the feature with random users to know the feedbacks and how they respond to it. So, there is very less chance that you will experience the automatically playing videos in your YouTube app for now.

The autoplay feature for YouTube is currently in the testing phase so, there is no guarantee it will roll out or not eventually. However, it is clear that the feature incorporated with subtitles will be less annoying than the Facebook’s autoplay videos. The use of autoplay feature totally depends on one's choice some prefer to select the video they want to play while some just enjoy the videos while scrolling down.
