Android Implicit Intents edit

Implicit Intents

Implicit intents do not name a specific component, but instead declare a general action to perform, which allows a component from another app to handle it.

For example, if you want to show the user a location on a map, you can use an implicit intent to request that another capable app show a specified location on a map.

Example:

// Create the text message with a string
Intent sendIntent = new Intent();
sendIntent.setAction(Intent.ACTION_SEND);
sendIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, textMessage);
sendIntent.setType("text/plain");

// Verify that the intent will resolve to an activity
if (sendIntent.resolveActivity(getPackageManager()) != null) {
    startActivity(sendIntent);
}
