Discover how to use headphones and the new micro:bit's built-in speaker to make your creations sing

The micro:bit can make sounds, play tunes and the new micro:bit has a built-in speaker to make it even easier to make expressive and useful projects.

Any micro:bit sound project will work with the speaker, but with the new micro:bit you can also express yourself with some new sounds: make your micro:bit giggle, greet you or let you know when it's sleepy or sad.

You can also mute the speaker and sound will still come out of the pins so you can still enjoy micro:bit music on headphones connected to GND and pin 0. In MakeCode, use the music block 'set on-board speaker off'.
