The sound component is a multimedia component that plays sound files and optionally vibrates for the number of milliseconds (thousandths of a second) specified in the Blocks Editor.

***The Sound component is best for short audio files (buzzers, ringers, etc.) while the player is better for longer audio files (songs, dialogue, etc.)

1. You can find the Sound component in the media tab in the palette column.


2. Note that this is an invisible component.


3. You can add an audio file in the properties column.


4. Go to the blocks and explore the option that you have with a sound component. How are the sound component blocks and player blocks different?
