It works like this:
A toast message can be triggered by an action the user takes, or be fired by an app itself.
The toast message automatically fades in and out on the surface of the current screen and only fills the amount of space required for the message. A toast message does not accept user input. The user’s current activity remains visible and interactive when a toast message pops up. The toast message can appear even if the application isn’t visible.
The toast message is best used for short text messages, such as 'File saved,'when you're fairly certain the user is paying attention to the screen. Toast messages can be used when your app is not active, but might be missed due to their brief nature. A toast can not accept user input; if you'd like the user to respond and take action, consider using a status bar notification or a dialog instead.
- Efficient message when user is already paying attention to screen
- Minimally disruptive to screen content
