Twitter: Here’s How to Stop Auto-Play Videos on Mobile

Follow our guide to stop Twitter videos from automatically playing on mobile

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.
