Google testing automatically playing videos in YouTube app

Google is now testing their new feature which allows video in the YouTube app to automatically play on the Home page.
Videos will now automatically play but muted while scrolling on homepage of the Youtube app and overlay subtitles. 
Upon opening the application the first video which will be featured on your homepage will start playing, and as you scroll through other videos, that previous one will stop playing and then start up the next one below it.The fact that subtitles are used in favor of audio keeps the feature a lot less intrusive than autoplay videos on the Facebook app or else.
You can always turn this feature off, so thats a plus
