YouTube autoplay video previews

Earlier, Google released a new feature on its website for YouTube, which allows you to seamlessly convert from your phone to your desktop. And, now the company is testing another feature for Youtube, which makes users feel very annoying.

According to the information (via 9to5Google), Youtube has now started testing autoplaying video previews for Android TV. It’s worth noting that this feature is only available to a small number of users on Android TV and Google TV.

This new autoplay video preview feature is similar to yours on the desktop and mobile YouTube apps. The feature will work when you scroll through the videos displayed on the main screen of the YouTube app. When you stop the scroll bar on any video, it will play the video preview together with the audio for a few seconds.

On mobile or desktop devices, the video plays completely. Conversely, the “Audio Preview” feature will show clips or parts of YouTube videos on Android TV and Google TV devices. It is not yet clear how wide the scope of this option is.

The video will continue to play from the point you watched when you selected it. For some users who want to remain silent, this can be a bit annoying. So now it’s best to turn down the volume before scrolling through YouTube.

The sound will start to play, and as the interface of YouTube for Android TV becomes larger and includes a grid of video thumbnails, auto-playing videos may be more difficult to detect.

Notably, autoplay video previews are enabled by default, which means that if you find them annoying or frustrating, you must manually disable them. Fortunately, as you can see from the screenshot above.
