The Autoplay feature makes it easier to decide what to watch next. After you watch a YouTube video, we’ll automatically play another related video based on your viewing history.
Autoplay is switched on by default. At the end of each video, you’ll see a countdown that tells you what’s going to play next. You can click Cancel on the countdown screen to prevent the next video from automatically playing.
Turn Autoplay off
You can adjust your Autoplay setting by toggling “Autoplay” under the video player, or:
- Go to your Profile picture icon.
- Scroll down to the “Autoplay” section.
- Toggle “Autoplay next video” Off.
YouTube Go automatically uses your most recent quality selection to play the following video. If you would like to adjust the quality selection, exit Autoplay by selecting a new video to play, and then select a different quality.
