How To Turn Off Autoplay On YouTube: YouTube Hack

The Feature of Autoplay was introduced around 2015 for every YouTube user and it’s accessible for every device that supports YouTube. After clicking on any video on YouTube, another video that is somewhere similar to the current video will be aligned in a sequence and will be played automatically when the first video will end on the screen. For instance, if you are watching an episode of a particular series, YouTube will align the next episode of the same series on its own. Therefore, it will be easy for you to watch the series without any problem as you won’t have to search for the next episode every time you play a video.

At times, this feature can turn out to be annoying because maybe the aligned video won’t be of your choice. If you are facing this trouble while watching videos on YouTube and want to disable the feature of Autoplay, you need to go through the upcoming section of this article where we will be guiding you on the methods to disable the Autoplay feature on YouTube.
