(2022) Can You Turn Off Autoplay on Instagram

Written by Thirumalraj

In this post, you’ll find the answer to this question.

And here’s an important thing to note:

Instagram’s desktop version doesn’t automatically play videos by default. You can manually play the video by hitting it.

Let’s begin.

Can You Turn Off Autoplay on Instagram

The Instagram app doesn’t provide an option to turn off autoplay completely.

You can use less cellular data with Instagram by following the below steps.

Remember that these steps stop videos from loading in advance. I use Android and iPhone here. 

Here are the steps:

Open the Instagram app. Hit your profile picture at the bottom right.

Tap the three horizontal lines at the top right.

Hit Settings > Account.

If you’re using an iPhone, follow these steps:

Select Data usage. Enable “Use less mobile data.”

That’s it. From now on, Instagram mutes all videos in the Feed.

But if you hit the video and unmute it, all the video will play with sound.

Follow these steps if you’re using Android:

Choose Cellular data use. Turn on the Data Saver.

That’s it. From now on, Instagram mutes all videos in the Feed.

But if you hit the video and unmute it, all the video will play with sound.

You can save data by setting up Instagram not to show high-resolution media. Here’s how:

Hit “High resolution media.”

You can now see these options: “Never,” “Wi-Fi Only (the default),” and “Cellular + WiFi.”

Select the former.

That’s it.

Notes:

  • For iPhone: To revert to the default setting, turn off “Use less mobile data.”
  • For Android: To revert to the default setting, turn off the “Data Saver.”

That’s all.

Thanks for reading.
