How to disable Facebook video auto-play on Android and PC

Aside from changing the look of the Facebook user interface with the recent update, which hasn’t been that warmly welcomed by users, there is yet another Facebook feature that can be quite annoying: video auto-play. Not only do you not always want to see what people are showing, but this also uses up more of the data (if your plan isn’t unlimited) and battery of your Android. Here is how to disable this feature on Android and PC.

First off, I just want to clarify that you can’t actually disable automatic video playback completely. The only available option in the update is to choose whether or not the auto-play videos will occur on Wi-Fi only. This means that when the box isn’t ticked, auto-play will happen when using mobile data. Check this box so that none of your precious data is used for some silly videos.
