In this article we have shared the tips and tricks to integrate two media players in a mobile app.

As we live in a hyper-connected world today, we expect everything to be connected to each other seamlessly. This is nowadays a very common requirement in which one app needs to be integrated into another app such that both perform their respective functionality flawlessly.

The mobile development team at Dexbytes had a great opportunity to implement a feature of integrating two media players in a mobile app.

The case was such that we had to develop a mobile app in which there were features to play video. The requirement here was to play songs through Spotify while viewing the video in the app. So basically we had two media players working at the same time. Also we had to ensure that we had all the options like play, pause, next track displayed for Spotify while viewing the video. 

Spotify offers a software development kit(SDK) and an application programming interface(API). It is always better to use SDK while developing a mobile app as it makes the development easy. 

The team made use of the SDK and implemented the feature such that the user can play songs through Spotify while viewing the video in the app along with all the features of a music player. The experience is so smooth and seamless that one cannot feel that the music is not the part of the video.
