YouTube is making a major change to its app, which is likely to prove unpopular with the majority of users.

It has added autoplay videos to home page, which start playing even if you don’t want them to.

The video right at the top of your home screen will play as soon as you open the app and, as you scroll down, it will stop and the one displayed below it will start.

The new functionality was spotted by Android Central, which says that videos on the home page play all the way through if you let them.


With many users still having capped data plans, the carriers are loving these changes. It’s way of YouTube getting more views as well.
