React Native Record Audio Tutorial

See the original posting on DZone Python

In this tutorial, we are going to learn how to record and play audio in React Native apps. We are going to build a simple screen that supports features such as recording audio, playing audio files, pausing and resuming, as well as resetting audio streams. The final app will look like the image below.

Recording and playing audio in mobile applications is a very popular feature. Fortunately, to record and play audio in React Native apps can be done easily. This is thanks to the Expo ecosystem that easily supports sound recording to React Native. However, if we need to add any feature that requires us to migrate off the Expo system to React Native CLI, we may need to put much more effort into its configuration.
