The new version of the Chrome called the Chrome 64 has added this feature. The new version is available on Windows, Mac, and Linux. The update is available on all the software versions. Users can update their Chrome to make it work.

How to enable the new Chrome feature?

To enable the new feature, users first need to update their Google Chrome version. It should happen automatically. If it doesn't you will see a red options menu and in there will be the update button. Once, that's then users can enable this feature. Users need to click the "View Site Information" symbol on the left-hand edge. Users can find it with a security certificate on the "omnibar" or the address bar combined with the Google search box. There will be an option to mute a site that automatically plays videos.

This, however, replaces the previous "mute tab" feature. That feature was only temporary. Meaning that feature muted the video once. Now it will mute the videos always. This will help a lot of users and maybe bring an end to automatically playing videos.
