When I open "Google Photo's", tap a photo to open it and then swipe left or right to go to the next photo etc, if the next thing is a video, it automatically starts playing the video which is really annoying, especially if the phone is not on silent!!
How do I disable autoplay?? The phone is a Pixel 8 and it's running Android 14, it's easy to do in the Apps like facebook etc but I can not find a way to turn it off in google photo's.

Welcome to Android Central! You could always try a 3rd party gallery app like Simple Gallery Pro or Piktures. I would also send feedback to Google about it from within the Google Photos app settings, since you do make a very good point about this.

I have done exactly that, hopefully they will fix it.
