How To Turn Off Facebook Feed Video Autoplay Feature

It is no longer news that Facebook is gradually transferring most of the features of Instagram down to its main Facebook application, we can see that when Facebook added the famous Stories Feature (from Snapchat and Instagram) to its Messenger app. Although this might seem good to some persons, but how about those who want the best from Facebook, those who prefer to use the main Facebook android app instead of the Lite version of Facebook? Will they be able to afford the much needed data to enjoy this new feature?

Although the new feature is cool for those who have enough data to waste, I'm pretty sure you don't want to waste a dime during this recession period, right? Moreover, it is also annoying when you're silently using Facebook and their sponsored videos automatically plays with loud sound when your phone's volume is very high, especially at work and late night.
