Did you know Twitter’s mobile application allows you to stop videos from automatically playing? There are actually multiple options to choose from when it comes to auto-play videos, allowing you to stop videos from automatically playing entirely or only when you’re not on Wi-Fi. Our guide will show you to how to change this setting in the Twitter mobile app.
Please keep in mind that you can change your auto-play setting on mobile without changing your web setting. As an example, you can stop auto-play videos on mobile but still allow auto-play videos on the web.

Step 4: Tap “Video autoplay.”
Step 5: Tap either “Wi-Fi only” or “Never,” depending on your preference. If you select Wi-Fi only, the app will only automatically play videos when you’re connected to Wi-Fi. If you select Never, the app will stop videos from automatically playing entirely.
