Connect the micro:bit with this breakout board.
The noisr sensor on this board requires to be drived with the extensions seach with “smarthome” in the makecode and add it.
Note: If you met a notice saying the codebase will be deleted due to incompatibility, you can go forward as the tips say or to create a new project.
Press button A to play the music, the volume displays on the micro:bit in the form of bar graph.
