Fuck any dev who thought playing sounds automatically on a webpage or on a mobile app without user's consent is a good feature. Especially when you don't even include a setting about it.

Yes I'm directly swearing at any devs from Instagram.

    Haven't seen that since the early 2000 with the flash dev boom. What site?

    Also I don't do Instagram I didn't know they do that.

    @JKyll woke up in the middle of the night (local time 3am) and browse Instagram app timeline. All video ads play automatically with sound the nano second they appear on the view. Almost woke the whole family up.

    It used to autoplay but in silent in past. They definitely updated it to be this way. Also don't see any setting to turn it off.

    Instagram doesn’t play sound on videos unless you tap them first. It plays sounds on stories, but there it makes sense.

    @620hun there was a short period where they tested sound auto playing videos on the feed. FB and IG like to do lots of AB testing and experiment with users.

    @cursee maybe. I must be part of an experiment too, because I don’t get any ads on Instagram. All my friends’ feed and stories are littered with them, but I have never had them, until one day they were everywhere. Luckily they went away after a few hours 😂
