Typically, there are two types of APIs:
- Browser APIs
Browser APIs are built into web browsers and can do complex things (like audio processing and effects) with the data from the browser and surrounding computer environment.
- Third-party APIs
Third-party APIs are, by contrast, not build into a browser and you have to get their information from a third-party online. Most social media platforms, for example, will have their own API, allowing you to display things like posts and tweets on web pages.
