Broadcast Recievers

Broadcast Receivers simply respond to broadcast messages from other applications or from the system itself. These messages are sometime called events or intents. For example, applications can also initiate broadcasts to let other applications know that some data has been downloaded to the device and is available for them to use, so this is broadcast receiver who will intercept this communication and will initiate appropriate action.

There are following two important steps to make BroadcastReceiver works for the systen broadcasted intents:

 

  • Creating the Broadcast Receiver.
  • Registering Broadcast Receiver

 

There is one additional steps in case you are going to implement your custom intents then you will have to create and broadcast those intents.
