Youtube Open link in new tab - Play if tab is selected (UX in Chrome)

almost 8 years ago from , Interaction Designer & Developer

Have you noticed Youtube/Chrome/Safari have added the functionality to not autoplay videos when you open the video in new tab and don't select it directly?

Try ctrl + left mouse click (pc) or cmd + left mouse click (mac) and you will see that the video won't autoplay, only when you select the tab the video starts.


I think it's really great! :D
