Google has begun testing auto-play videos in the Android app home page. This feature is separate from automatically playing videos after the clip end.

The new feature only applies to the homepage. Videos play without sound and instead you see subtitles, giving you an idea on what’s going on in the video.

Users can watch the whole video and the playback will stop as soon as you scroll up or down, resulting in the current video (which is visible on screen) being auto-played.

The function official name is “Play as you browse” and can be activated or tun off from the settings menu (Account -> Settings -> General). Users can also choose the feature to be active only on a WiFi connection.

There’s currently no information on when this functionality will appear in the iOS version of the app.
