This class is deprecated.
LocalBroadcastManager is an application-wide event bus and embraces layer violations in your app: any component may listen events from any other. You can replace usage of LocalBroadcastManager with other implementation of observable pattern, depending on your usecase suitable options may be LiveData or reactive streams.

Helper to register for and send broadcasts of Intents to local objects within your process. This has a number of advantages over sending global broadcasts with Context.sendBroadcast(Intent):

  • You know that the data you are broadcasting won't leave your app, so don't need to worry about leaking private data.
  • It is not possible for other applications to send these broadcasts to your app, so you don't need to worry about having security holes they can exploit.
  • It is more efficient than sending a global broadcast through the system.
