Enable Twitter videos to continue playing audio even after tab has lost focus

Twitter “mute” audio of videos during Web browsing, you can fix it easily in simple steps. Let’s find out how to allow videos playing audio automatically.

Enable Twitter videos to continue playing audio even after tab has lost focus
  • Save

When we start playing a video on Twitter, the audio is set to minimum and must be enabled with a direct action by the user. If we then continue browsing by moving the browser focus to a new tab, the social network of tweets proceeds to disable the sound of the video in question again.

The simplest and most immediate way to avoid the automatic audio on Twitter, for registered users as for those without accounts on the social network, is to open the link with the video we are interested in keeping in “background” in a new browser window. In this way, the change of tab in the main browser window will no longer affect the audio of the second window.

Twitter’s behavior with the automute can be nothing short of annoying if we are used to listening to the audio of the videos in the background while we do other things; the social network of twitter could in this sense learn from Facebook, where the start of a video content with embedded audio continues to be heard until it decides otherwise.
