Today, I will show you how do I convert a interface to byte in golang, as above mentioned I’m going to use interface.([]byte) method.

Let’s start our Golang convert interface to byte example

main.go

package main

import (
	"fmt"
)

func passInterface(v interface{}) {
	b, ok := v.(*[]byte)
	fmt.Println(ok)
	fmt.Println(b)
}

func main() {
	passInterface(&[]byte{0x00, 0x01, 0x02})
}

In the above example, we have converted the interface value to a byte and printed in golang console. let’s check the output.

Output

true
&[0 1 2]

I hope it helps you, All the best 👍.
