As a first step, Chrome will now feature the ability to mute videos that autoplay by default. You can do so with just a few mouse clicks.
We told you about these Chrome features back in September, and warned that it could have some downsides in the long run. Then, test it by going to a website that autoplays video with sound. When you want to put a website into a cone of silence, click on the icon next to the URL-typically an encircled "i" or a green padlock. By clicking on it, users should get a dropdown menu. These are most common on social media or news sites like, say, the very page you're on right now.
We all know how annoying autoplay videos are, especially when you are trying to do something important. However, Chrome will mute sound for all the contents that are navigated to by the user under the parent domain, provided the feature is turned on for the domain. This is aimed at preventing websites from using transparent overlays or decoy play/download buttons to open new tabs or pop-ups.
All of these features will be part of the ChromeBeta which means that you'll have to participate in it if you're looking to take advantage of it.

At the same time, Google said one of the biggest complaints is unexpected media playback, which cannot only make unwanted noise, but also consume power and use data. Google is well aware of how valuable videos are to companies and advertisers and while it's happy to help block the truly annoying and intrusive ones, the search giant is likely uninterested in muting an entire stream of revenue across the entire web.
