Need to enable or disable sound permissions in the Samsung Internet browser? Learn how to control sound and auto-play access for sites.

The Samsung Internet browser offers the control to sound and autoplay. We can configure the Useful features settings and the Phone’s Sound access settings to disable autoplay and control sound playback on the browser.

There is also a ‘Video Assistant’ feature that provides better control for video playback in Samsung browser.

In this guide, we have shared the steps to manage the sound and media autoplay settings within the Samsung Internet browser.

Configure Media Autoplay

With autoplay, you don’t have to play the next song on streaming sound; it will automatically start the next.

However, this feature is misused by advertisement agencies to play video ads, which often leads to embarrassment. Hence, it’s recommended to disable autoplay if you aren’t using it.

  1. Launch the Samsung Internet app on your phone.
  2. Tap on More horizontal 3-bar icon for the menu options list.
  3. Select the Settings menu.

If you disable the toggle switch, the browser will automatically stop all the autoplay triggers that an advertisement company has set. Unless you manually hit the Play button, the media isn’t going to play.

Note: These sound permission settings may not be available on all Android phones. Please check your device settings.

Unfortunately, Samsung Internet doesn’t have site-specific Sound settings, if you revoke the permission, no website can play audio/music.

Bottom Line

As mentioned earlier, Samsung Internet has no functionality to enable, allow, or block websites from accessing sound. But you can allow or block the Sound access with the help of your Phone Settings.

However, you can customize the media autoplay within the browser interface.
