Facebook’s iOS app has been updated to support auto-playing videos. Facebook started testing out the auto-playing videos on mobile devices three months ago. As you scroll down the News Feed, videos will start playing without audio. To play sound on the video, simply tap on it once. If you do not want to watch the video, just keep scrolling. This feature clears the way for potential video ads that automatically play in mobile devices.
