Facebook for iOS Updated With Automatic Video Playback
On Wednesday, social networking giant Facebook released an update to its iOS application bringing the application up to version 6.8.
The update makes it so that videos in your News Feed will play automatically while you are scrolling through the content in your News Feed. It behaves much like videos in your Instagram News Feed. Even though the videos begin playing automatically, you won’t hear noise from the video until you tap on the video. This prevents unwanted noises from causing a scene when you want to remain quiet.
The update also adds in some bug fixes for the application, which improve not only the application's security and stability, but also improve the application's performance in some cases.
Existing users of Facebook for iOS will find the update under the Updates tab in the App Store application. Alternatively, you can download the latest version of Facebook for iOS for free from this App Store link
