Video and audio begin to play even when the setting is never play. You can turn it off manually but when you scroll the article, it begins.
Make never play the default and make it work! I cannot read Yahoo News in a public place.

Make it so folks have to un-mute sound before you play the sound in a video. Your videos play when people don't want them and having the sound blaring when folks don't want to watch the video much less have sound blaring from their phone, such as during a meeting or in a court room, is a horrible user experience. No one is asking for videos to play on their own. I assure you nobody ever said you know what we need is an app that automatically starts playing and blaring a video own it's own when I didn't click on the video. It's a stupid awful feature nobody wants. Why do you have it?

Yes, please give a functional option to TURN OFF AUDIO AUTO PLAY at the top of a story! Very annoying, especially if you’re in a quiet place.
