How to detect Android Back button press

Detecting android device hardware back button / soft back button press is very easy. But be careful while overriding the default back button action as it is not suggested to change the android default user experience.

Method 1



Override the onBackPressed() method and take the action inside this function.

@Override
	public void onBackPressed() {
		// Write your code here

		super.onBackPressed();
	}
