No Sound on Facebook Videos in Chrome, Here’s How to Fix It
We have jotted down the effective ways to fix the audio not coming from Facebook videos issue. Try them and throw the problem out of your phone.
1. Make Sure Your Device Is Not Muted
This solution may sound pretty basic but many of us often forget to unmute the device. Check if your phone is muted. If yes, unmute it and play the Facebook videos.
Remove the silent mode on your phone and increase the media volume to a minimum of 50%. Now, play the video and check if the problem is fixed.
2. Unmute the Facebook Video
By default, Facebook videos are muted. If you have not unmuted the video, you’ll get no sound even when the video is playing.
Look at the bottom-right corner of the video, if there’s a cross sign with a sound icon, it means the sound is muted. You can tap on it to unmute the sound. Now, you should be able to enjoy the video with sound.
3. Play Another Video
Not all Facebook videos have sound. Probably, the Facebook video you were playing also does not have sound. To check for this, play other videos, and don’t forget to unmute the video.
If other videos have sound, it means that the video you were playing earlier has no sound. If other Facebook videos also have no sound, try other solutions as well.
4. Restart Your Phone
Software issues and system glitches often cause problems to the device. Most of them can be easily fixed just by restarting the device as it clears out temporary memory and removes all background processes.
5. Update Google Chrome
Although an older Google Chrome version should work just fine, it can create many problems sometimes. To get the most out of Google Chrome, you should keep the app up to date all the time.
