How to prevent Kik from automatically playing videos

Kik is a good instant messaging app that allows you to send pictures and videos as messages.  However, Kik can default to automatically play any videos that someone sends you.  This setting can be problematic depending on where you are when someone sends you a video, such as at work or in the library.

You can disable this setting, and Kik will still download the video, but it won't begin playing it until you decide to start it.  To disable Kik's automatic video play:

- Open the app on your phone or tablet
- Tap the Settings icon in the upper right (the gear icon)
- Tap Chat Settings
- Tap Auto Play Videos
- Tap Never Play Videos Automatically
