Class Overview

Notification style for media playback notifications. In the expanded form, bigContentView, up to 5 Notification.Actions specified with addAction will be shown as icon-only pushbuttons, suitable for transport controls. The Bitmap given to setLargeIcon() will be treated as album artwork. Unlike the other styles provided here, MediaStyle can also modify the standard-size contentView; by providing action indices to setShowActionsInCompactView(int) you can promote up to 3 actions to be displayed in the standard view alongside the usual content. Notifications created with MediaStyle will have their category set to CATEGORY_TRANSPORT unless you set a different category using setCategory(). Finally, if you attach a MediaSession.Token using setMediaSession(MediaSession.Token), the System UI can identify this as a notification representing an active media session and respond accordingly (by showing album artwork in the lockscreen, for example). To use this style with your Notification, feed it to setStyle(android.app.Notification.Style) like so:

 Notification noti = new Notification.Builder()
     .setSmallIcon(R.drawable.ic_stat_player)
     .setContentTitle("Track title")     // these three lines are optional
     .setContentText("Artist - Album")   // if you use
     .setLargeIcon(albumArtBitmap))      // setMediaSession(token)
     .setStyle(new Notification.MediaStyle()
         .setMediaSession(mySession))
     .build();
