Android: YouTube now shows video previews in the home panel, which consumes data and is just annoying. Fortunately, you can turn them off.
First, tap your profile picture in the top right, then tap Settings > General.
Now go to “Reading in Streams” and select “Off” from the menu.
It makes sense for YouTube to add a feature like this, as it gives users a very clear idea of what the video in question will be like, but at the same time, it’s easy to see why users might find it annoying.
Thanks to my friend Nancy Messieh from MakeUseOf for pointing this out to me.
