How to enable vibration or make your phone vibrate from your Android App?

This simple video shows the steps to enable the vibration in your phone. It uses VIBRATOR_SERVICE to make your phone vibrate.

It creates required Vibration effect of 1000 milliseconds(1 second) duration which vibrates the phone for default vibration effect.

The result of this App is difficult to show in the emulator over a video. But the App developed in this tutorial is successfully tested on a real phone for vibration effect.

I hope you like this video. For any questions, suggestions or appreciation please contact us at: https://programmerworld.co/contact/ or email at: programmerworld1990@gmail.com
