NEW DELHI: In a much-anticipated move, tech giant Google announced that autoplay videos with audio enabled will be permanently blocked on its web browser, Google Chrome.

The tech giant stated that the next update to Chrome (version 66) will include changes to autoplay videos such that the browser will only play videos automatically if the sound isn't playing by default, if the user clicks to interact with the site, or has previously shown an interest in media on the site, The Verge reported.

While these changes were originally scheduled for Chrome 64, which arrived in January with an option to permanently mute websites that misuse autoplay videos with the sound on by default, Google delayed the additional autoplay changes to Chrome 66. However, the new feature will appear in the beta channels of Chrome a month ahead of its public release.

In January, Google had announced the rollout of a feature to help users permanently mute websites containing autoplay videos after many complaints were received regarding certain videos which pop up while browsing that begins without pressing the 'play' button and often plays with audio.

Google had also announced to introduce a feature to detect disguised links and pop ups, and prevent sites from tricking users into opening new windows or tabs by making links to third-party websites look like something else.

The tech giant further noted that a home-built ad-blocker will be installed on Chrome that will automatically prevent several "intrusive" types of ads from appearing online.
