In the video Ben Deitch added Viewpager to the Viewpagerfragment.

Purpose of adding viewpager

If you see the app mockups then you can see that when you tap on a item you move to second screen where is two swipe able tabs. If you want to add swipe able tabs in android you have to use ViewPager.

So now the question how to add viewpager

  • First define ViewPager in the XML
  • Then Setup Viewpager in the activity or fragment.

I am not going to show you how to setup Viewpager because it's already in the video. But I told you why he added Viewpager.

Hope the video is now clear to you
