Common App Intents (API Level 30)

Apps can use android Intents to request functionality from other Android apps on the device. The Android CDD specifies a list of common app Intents that must be handled on all compatible Android devices to provide essential functionality, for example, DeskClock, Browser, and Contacts. Your app can safely request functionality through these Intents and be assured that the intent is handled properly.

The table below lists the standard common app Intents supported on all compatible Android devices running Android 11 (API level 30). To learn more about Intents or how to send them, see the documentation.

If you discover that a device does not handle a common app intent as expected, please let us know by giving us feedback.
