RecommendationExtender

class RecommendationExtender : Extender
kotlin.Any
   ↳ androidx.recommendation.app.RecommendationExtender

Helper class to add content info extensions to notifications. To create a notification with content info extensions:

  1. Create an Notification.Builder, setting any desired properties.
  2. Create a RecommendationExtender.
  3. Set content info specific properties using the add and set methods of RecommendationExtender.
  4. Call Notification.Builder.extend(Notification.Extender) to apply the extensions to a notification.
Notification notification = new Notification.Builder(context) * ... * .extend(new RecommendationExtender() * .set*(...)) * .build(); * 

Content info extensions can be accessed on an existing notification by using the RecommendationExtender(Notification) constructor, and then using the get methods to access values.
