How to Turn Off AutoPlay in the Reddit iPhone App

Autoplay is a feature that causes a video to play as soon as it is visible on your screen.

Some people find it useful, but others might prefer to not play a video until they are ready to watch it or if they want to watch it at all.

The Reddit app may be auto-playing videos for you, even if it is only happening when you are on a Wi-Fi network.

Fortunately, this is a setting over which you have control, so you can choose to prevent any autoplaying when you browse Reddit on your iPhone.

Our guide below will show you where to find this setting so that you can disable it.
