What is Android Toast?
- A toast provides simple feedback about an operation in a small popup. It only fills the amount of space required for the message and the current activity remains visible and interactive.
- For example, navigating away from an email before you send it triggers a "Draft saved" toast to let you know that you can continue editing later.
- Toasts automatically disappear after a timeout.
