"Allow" and "Limit" both have the same description. "Block" has a different one.

"Limit" and "Allow" should have distinct descriptions.

right now the user can't know the difference between what "Allow" and "Limit" does in action.

Hi @HotCakeX, thank you for the feedback.  I have reached out to the team that owns this and have begun the conversation.  On one hand, the current version of Microsoft Edge doesn't provide help strings, and we haven't heard much negative feedback, but on the other, it makes it much more clear what the different options do.  Thank you again for the suggestion.

Official Explanation:

You can choose from two options which restrict whether video and audio can play automatically. If you choose Limit, media will autoplay based on how you’ve used media on that site in the past. If you choose Block, all sites will be blocked from playing media automatically.

I don't see Media Autoplay in the Settings list. Has it moved?

media autoplay is not showing up on site permissions. I am running Version 79.0.279.0 (Official build) dev (64-bit).
