While binging your favorite shows on Amazon Prime Video, the Auto Play feature saves you the pain of using the remote. However, Auto Play can act against this convenience when you fall asleep or while watching something with your partner or family. While browsing Amazon Prime Video, the trailer or promo content starts playing if you stop on a content title card for more than two seconds. That can be annoying and distracting.
It is worse if you like to watch content without looking at the trailers or other short videos. Luckily, you can save yourself scrolling through episodes list to figure out which ones you haven’t watched after you disable the Auto Play feature. This post will show you how to turn off Auto Play in Amazon Prime Video.
