Copy the font file (.ttf) that you may have downloaded into this folder. Now you just have to write 3 lines of code in the MainActivity file to make it work.

MainActivity.java

 TextView txt = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.textView);

 //Loading Font Face
 Typeface tf = Typeface.createfromAsset(getAssets(),"fontname.ttf");

 txt.setTypeface(tf);

That’s it. You have successfully implemented a third party font in your project. Congrats!
