override the onBackPressed() method and display a message that Back was pressed.

This is the question.

Override the onBackPressed() method and display a message that Back was pressed.

I have written like this and used a Toast but still not working.

public void onBackPressed() { super.onBackPressed();
Toast.makeText(this,"back key is pressed", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show(); }

PodcastActivity.java
import android.os.Bundle;

public class PodcastActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_podcast);

      @Override
    public void onBackPressed() {
            super.onBackPressed();  
    Toast.makeText(this,"back key is pressed", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

      }

    }


}
