There are situations where you might want your app to show a quick message to the user, without necessarily waiting for the user to respond. For example, when a user performs an action like sending an email or deleting a file, your app shows a quick confirmation to the user. Often, the user doesn't need to respond to the message. The message needs to be prominent enough that the user can see it, but not so prominent that it prevents the user from working with your app.
Android provides the
widget for this common use case. A
Snackbar provides a quick pop-up message to the
user. The current activity remains visible and interactive while the
displayed. After a short time, the
Snackbar automatically dismisses itself.
