Global Toast



How can I get a toast to display outside of my app? I've tried setting the SystemUiModality to global, but it doesn't seem to work. Could there be some permissions I'm missing? Which ones would I need and where would I set them? I've tried all of the relevant sounding ones in my bar-descriptor.xml.

Re: Global Toast

What do you mean by outside your app?


Toasts are only App run-time notifications.


If you want to notify the user when they are not using your app then you need to use notifications,
