    Google Chrome: Block Video Autoplay


    Not sure if everyone else is as annoyed by sites like CNN where videos play automatically, but I was elated to read that Chrome was going to allow blocking autoplay of videos.

    When is that coming? I had read Jan 2018, but I can't find the setting.

    Settings -> Advanced options ->Privacy and Security -> Content Settings -> Sound

    That can help, but I thought a way to block videos was coming.

    Sort of, it's a built-in default...

    Videos that automatically play with sound are also now disabled by default.
