To disable the auto-play option on web pages, there are three ways:

The first option is to go to the Google Chrome browser page, which plays the audio, and there is a small icon on the tab in the form of the loudspeaker.

You will see a small menu pop-up when you click on it with the right mouse button. To deactivate the sound, just click on the “Mute tab.”

The second way is also simple. Go to the Chrome address bar and type chrome://flags/#enable-tab-audio-muting .

You will see the highlighted option with ocher color “Tab audio muting UI control ” and click on “Enable.”

Then restart the browser. You can disable the sound with just one mouse button, click on the loudspeaker icon in the web page tab, and the sound will automatically stop.

The third way is to install one of many free extensions for Google Chrome. For example, you can get the Mute Tab - Silent in a click extension that allows you to control sound on every tab you open in Chrome with a single click.

To get this or any other extension, go to the Chrome web store and type mute or mute tab in the search box.
