Angela Moscaritolo says, “When Facebook first started rolling out auto-play videos on timelines, it mercifully muted the footage by default. That changes going forward, though, as videos will now automatically play with the sound turned on.

Facebook Engineering Manager Alex Li and Product Manager Dana Sittler announced the change in a Tuesday blog post, writing that “as people watch more video on phones, they’ve come to expect sound when the volume on their device is turned on.”

The social network has been testing this new “sound on” feature, and received “positive feedback” about it, Li and Sittler added. So it’s slowly rolling out to more people”.
