How to Turn Off YouTube Autoplay

This can be a very frustrating feature since YouTube doesn’t always have the best recommendations I want to play. There are different ways to disable YouTube Autoplay function. Let’s know how to do it?

Way 1:
When the video you’re viewing finishes, you’ll see a “Up Next” message and a timer. Here you can simply click on Play icon to watch the next video or click on Cancel to stop, but you only have a couple of moments to do it. ESC key on your computer keyboard also does the same function as Cancel.

YouTube only added the autoplay feature on desktop sites. Mobile sites and application don’t appear to have obtained the function. In my opinion, it is better to choose manually instead of using autoplay, because it always not gives the proper suggestions. If you like it, then it’s ok. If not, then you can turn off YouTube autoplay feature by going through the above procedures.
