Adding Text to a Notification4:52 with Ben Jakuben
Notifications are another type of communication in Android that is similar in spirit to Broadcast Intents and Receivers. Local notifications show up in the notification drawer and display some information to the user, and optionally trigger some actions, too.
We first covered Notifications here at Treehouse in the Threads and Services course. To familiarize yourself with the initial setup, check out the Foreground Services video, where Ben Deitch sets up a local notification for a foreground service.
