January 2022 Power Apps community call: Creating an Audio Player and deep dive into Pay-as-you-go features

Welcome to the Power Apps community call. These calls are the 3rd Wednesday of each month where we share the latest news about Power Apps, demonstrate tips and tools to help you build amazing Power Apps. In these calls you will meet the Power Apps product team and community experts to get your questions answered.  For the month of January, we have two very exciting topics!

Community rockstar Shadrack Inusah will walk through how to create an audio player using Power Apps and Kavishi Agarwal will walk through the new Power Apps Pay-as-you-go features.

If you are not familiar with Pay-as-you-go it is a new way to pay for Power Apps using an Azure subscription, which allows you to get started building and sharing apps without any license commitment or upfront purchasing.
