I am trying to figure out the use of

%matplotlib inline

this code in python while working with visualizing data but havent found any significant use. Found few images and exmaple where the notebook wasnt printing/displaying the graph below the code. But in 2024, if I use my code without this line it still works the same as without the code line.

  1. Is there something that I am missing?
  2. Is there actually somewhere where it makes a significant difference?

Expected a difference in output or code when using %matplotlib inline but found not so much of a difference.
