Mobile devices have these days become many people’s primary source of entertainment. Not only do we use them as our personal assistants which allow us schedule reminders, keep todo lists, shopping and even wish lists, but we also play games and music through them.
Some years back,probably just a decade ago, it was very expensive to find a phone that could do all these. During those days we had feature phones like nokia, sony ericson, alcatel,siemens etc. These phones were not smartphones and didn’t do alot more than calling and sending text messages.
However, these days smarphones are as easy to get as almost anything else. Not just in tier one countries but also in poor countries people have powerful smartphones that can:
- Access the internet, Send emails, Whatsapp etc.
- Play media files like mp3 and mp4 songs.
- Install other apps.
MediaPlayer as a class therefore allows us continue this rich tradition of empowering users. These days we don’t media files only for entertainment but also for educative purposes. Hence this class is one of the most empowering android framework classes that is continuing to revolutionize the tech world.
