Microsoft Edge will block autoplay media

Microfost Edge, the default Windows 10 browser, will be able to block auto-play media after Redstone 5 Update, scheduled to be released in the autumn of this year.

microsoft edge auto play feature

Microsoft has announced this change as part of Windows 10 Preview build 17692, which will be available for download in the coming weeks.

With this update, Microsoft's browser will follow the steps of Google Chrome, which recently added the function of whether the user wants to automatically play media such as video or sounds when they visit a page.

Microsoft said "An add-on that will be available shortly in the Edge Browser enables you to automatically play video. You will be able to find the option in "Advanced Settings" under "Allow sites to automatically play media". It was also reported that the default setting would be off.

As for Edge's worthy opponents, Chrome already has this feature from the 66 version onwards. Instead, Mozilla's Firefox is still in the process of creating the corresponding option, but no estimated time has been reported.

Edge gets new features with coming Windows 10 updates, and with the big Redstone 5 coming in the fall. This means that Microsoft will have enough time to improve the existing features but also to try them for possible vulnerabilities or malfunctions they may have, first released them.
