    Google said this week that Chrome 66 now blocks "about half" of the videos that feature auto-playing sound. Engineers added this feature in Chrome 66, released in mid-April.

    The browser maker says Chrome uses a list of 1,000 sites for which it allows videos to play with sound at page load. Most of these are reputable sites such as YouTube, Vimeo, DailyMotion, and others.

    For the rest, Chrome prevents videos from playing sound, and the user must specifically press the play button or interact with the video before the browser would allow any audio to play.
