Application Programming Interface, or APIs, are communication protocols, or software intermediaries that facilitate the exchange of data between applications. Web services come with integrated APIs, and every time we use apps on our phones, APIs work in the background to make those apps work. Combining a few APIs to develop a new app or service is easy, and coders and developers use them all the time for this purpose. They allow developers to embed features of other apps into their new apps at no extra cost. They also help developers save time since they can access the huge database from large web services and develop innovative apps to create enhanced user experience.
