Sharing the news exclusively via their website, tech blog Techlomedia.in described the changes to YouTube in detail, highlighting improved functionality for desktop users.
Tech journalist Sridhar Belide explained: “When you open YouTube and play a video, you can now see this new autoplay option, which is enabled by default”.
“This [can be] uncomfortable to use for some users and so can be toggled ON or OFF. If you turn the feature OFF, this does not play the next video automatically. It will be in a disabled state until you enable it again”.
