    Why would you ever need such a hook? We’ll, I’ll give you two examples. The first one is my personal website, (I swear this is not self-promotion 🙄), built with React, which top navigation bar contains a button to switch between light and dark theme. Actually, if you turn up the sound a little bit, you might hear a switch sound. This sound comes from this custom hook. The second example is the Typospeed game (not self-promotion either), where you can hear sounds when removing a word (actually, Typospeed was built with Svelte, but you get the idea). In both examples, we need to play some sounds, and we don’t want to repeat ourselves by manually instantiating a new audio, settings its volume, its playback rate...
