Android TextSwitcher is a user interface widget that contains number of textView and displays one at a time. Textswitcher is subclass of View Switcher which is used to animates one text and displays next one.

- Click on File, then New => New Project.
- After that include the Kotlin support and click on next.
- Select the minimum SDK as per convenience and click next button.

Modify activity_main.xml file
In this file, we use the TextSwitcher, Buttons and also set their attributes.
Update strings.xml file

Create TextSwitcher in MainActivity.kt file
First, we declare an array languages which contains the list of languages used for the textView.
private val textList = arrayOf("Java","Python","Kotlin","Scala","C++")
then, we create the TextSwitcher and set attributes for textView like text color, text Size.
val textSwitcher = findViewById<TextSwitcher>(R.id.textSwitcher)
Add the TextSwitcher in layout using this
val c_Layout = findViewById
(R.id.constraint_layout) //add textSwitcher in constraint layout c_Layout?.addView(textSwitcher)
