Toasts display information and disappear automatically after 2 seconds. They’re useful when you want to show simple and short bites of information. For more important messages, use a pop-up that requires confirmation. Using a graphic toast can help users understand information more easily.


You can use toasts to show the result of non-critical actions and provide simple information on the app’s current status.


  • Automatic expiration

    Toasts do not require user confirmation. They automatically expire after a 2-second timeout. Users can tap the screen to close a toast before it disappears automatically.

  • No scrolling

    Toasts don’t allow scrolling. If you have long text that doesn’t fit on one screen, use a confirmation pop-up instead.


  • Graphic toasts

    A graphic toast displays an icon or an icon with short text. You can provide up to 2 lines of text below the icon. Keep this text as short and simple as possible, for example Photo deleted, Message sent, or Update shared. You can use a common set to minimize fragmentation, or use your own customized icon to express your app’s identity.
