Chrome 71 includes Duet UI tweaks, changes to autoplay, new APIs, and more [APK Download]

Wednesday, December 5th, 2018

Chrome 70 was a relatively minor release (at least when it came to user-facing changes), and it seems like Chrome 71 is much the same. The latest version of Chrome is now rolling out to desktop platforms and Android, with a few noteworth changes — particularly involving the 'Duet' interface and autoplay.

Google spent over a year on Chrome's bottom address bar redesign, but it was canned at the last minute.

Google app v8.49 beta prepares Collection sharing, Lens image search history, and and Workspaces [APK Teardown]

Tuesday, November 13th, 2018

Friday evening brought us another update to the Google app. Unlike the previous version, there are a fair number of topics to discuss from a teardown. Google is preparing a screen for viewing your image searches from Lens, Collection sharing, a few changes to the layout of settings, and there are even hints of a mystery feature named Workspaces.

Firefox Nightly can now block auto-playing audio

Wednesday, July 25th, 2018

Firefox is finally addressing a big browsing annoyance. The browser's Nightly build can now block websites from automatically playing audio. This isn't a first; Chrome has had the same ability since April (and even longer on mobile). Still, it's a great feature, and a boon for Mozilla diehards.

The setting is in the Notifications section in Preferences, and has the three obvious options: always allow, always ask, and always block. The ask option will show a pop-up under the address bar when a site wants to auto-play audio with a checkbox to make the browser remember your preference for that particular site.

Google partially rolls back Chrome 66’s autoplay changes

Wednesday, May 16th, 2018

With the release of Chrome 66 late last month, Google introduced new autoplay restrictions on both mobile and desktop Chrome. Sites could only start video and audio automatically if they had a high score on Chrome's 'Media Engagement Index,' which takes into account how often the user clicks on the site and watches media.

While this was a good change in theory, it received plenty of valid criticism.  For example, the new behavior broke countless web games and demos.

Chrome’s new autoplay requirements are breaking online games

Saturday, May 12th, 2018

For years, autoplaying video and audio on the web has been a constant source of frustration for users. Restrictions on autoplaying content have been in mobile browsers for years, partially due to the processing limitations of early smartphones, and partially to conserve mobile data usage. With the release of Chrome 66 late last month, Google introduced new autoplay restrictions on both mobile and desktop Chrome.

While most users (myself included) celebrated this change, there has been plenty of valid criticism.

YouTube is testing subtitles on its home page’s autoplay videos

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

Back in October, YouTube began testing autoplaying videos on its Android app's home page. Fast forward to today and the feature still doesn't work on my devices, even though I have the option in settings, but it's working just fine for Artem. In fact, the Google gods even bestowed a new test upon him: subtitles in the aforementioned autoplaying videos.

It seems like Artem's been watching a lot of The Office lately.

YouTube v13.01 continues development on dark mode, may enable swipe-to-skip ads, and relocates autoplay setting [APK Teardown]

Friday, January 12th, 2018

YouTube just took a big version jump from v12.49 to v13.01, but you probably won't notice a lot of changes if you're just tapping around. In fact, this update appears to be pretty average for for most of YouTube's releases, which usually include a couple tweaks here and there, and sometimes some interesting material for a teardown – and this update has both. You'll find a new page in the Settings screen for autoplay options, and a teardown turns up some inspiring progress on a dark mode and possibly an adjustment to the ad-skipping experience.

YouTube is testing autoplay videos on the home page, but you can turn them off

Thursday, October 12th, 2017

Autoplaying videos are the devil. I can't say how many times in a single week I have to turn off the "autoplay" toggle on YouTube's queue so it doesn't move from the video I'm watching to what it thinks I want to see next. (Why isn't this a universal setting, YouTube, why?!) And now it looks like YouTube is testing another way to annoy you with autoplaying videos on your home screen.
