Audio Auto-Play


Some features on Yoyo Chinese, like flashcard practice, quiz, mastery review, etc., use audio auto-play so that you don't have to click a button each time you want to hear the audio.

  • Your browser may have audio auto-play disabled already by default and/or need to be enabled in order to use these features as intended.

  • Additionally, mobile browsers have finicky rules about audio auto-play and require the user (that's you!) to have interacted with the website in certain ways before the browser will allow & enable audio-auto play.

See below for details on how to enable audio-auto play in each browser and keep in mind that if you're on mobile, you may also have to click a few audio files and use the site for a few minutes before the audio-auto play will start working.
