Google Chrome may soon let you mute annoying noisy websites

By : |August 28, 2017 0

Google Chrome will soon allow users to permanently mute websites that auto-load videos with sound. The new feature, currently in testing stage was first spotted by Android Police.

In a post, François Beaufort, Google developer said, “This will give you more control about which website is allowed to throw sound at you automatically.” Currently, you can mute tabs in Chrome tabs by right clicking on them, but the process is canceled out once you close the tab or Chrome. Once this feature makes its way from Canary to the public build of Chrome, which will take a few weeks at the least, you’ll be able to put websites on permanent lockdown with just a few clicks.

This kind of feature would discourage publishers from auto playing videos with the sound for fear that their websites would be muted forever and will be a huge relief for the users.

While the feature would only appear in Chrome, assuming that it graduates from this test rollout, it could spur other browser companies to follow suit.
