Sometimes, you are too much busy in finding your desired game and finally happen to locate it; you see a description page related to that game alongside the screen. This page usually has the details of the contents of the game and also shows a trailer. However, when you browse the Xbox One Store on the console, some promotional videos automatically play on your screen by default during the time you open the dedicated store page for that game. At times, these videos provide you with some helpful or important information about the game just to guide your purchasing decisions. Therefore the auto-playing videos with sound are not a good thing.


Thus, the problem is that when you start playing the videos automatically at the top. There is not any sound that comes from the video, and in this case, you have to pause the video immediately. But it is annoying and irritating for the users. Luckily, there is a way to disable the auto-play videos in the Xbox One Store. Below we discuss a few simple steps which will help you in disabling the auto play option. The steps are discussed below.
