What is API used for?

An API (Application Programming Interface) is a set of functions that allows applications to access data and interact with external software components, operating systems, or microservices. To simplify, an API delivers a user response to a system and sends the system's response back to a user.

API is the acronym for Application Programming Interface, which is a software intermediary that allows two applications to talk to each other. Each time you use an app like Facebook, send an instant message, or check the weather on your phone, you're using an API.

There are four principal types of API commonly used in web-based applications: public, partner, private and composite. In this context, the API "type" indicates the intended scope of use. Public APIs. A public API is open and available for use by any outside developer or business
