Matlab Online (ver R2018b)
I'm playing some audio using sound(y,Fs) but I can't find a way to stop the audio from playing. You can guess that it gets even worse when you (accidentally) execute the command twice (yes it plays the music over eachother instead of replacing it). Refreshing the page is the only option for now.
I know you can use audioplayer(y,Fs) for offline versions but it won't work online.
The sound() command does call audioplayer() internally in R2018b. So I cannot see a reason to prefer sound() instead or using audioplayer() directly.

sound() can only be interrupted by killing matlab .

works but isn't documented (h/t Li Kang: https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/99704-how-can-i-interrupt-the-playback-of-an-audio-file-that-has-been-initiated-using-wavplay-in-matlab-7#answer_246119)

lol u guys can also use this too...
[a, fs] = audioread('yourfilehere.mp3');
fs =1.0*fs; %%We can adjust our speed of our song by multiplying our fs with any desired numbers.
y = input ('Press 1 to stop the music: ');
fprintf ('You didn''t enter 1 ');

Also, the relevant code is equivalent to the other answer. What does this one add?
