public class ProcessLifecycleOwner
extends Object implements LifecycleOwner

   ↳ androidx.lifecycle.ProcessLifecycleOwner

Class that provides lifecycle for the whole application process.

You can consider this LifecycleOwner as the composite of all of your Activities, except that Lifecycle.Event.ON_CREATE will be dispatched once and Lifecycle.Event.ON_DESTROY will never be dispatched. Other lifecycle events will be dispatched with following rules: ProcessLifecycleOwner will dispatch Lifecycle.Event.ON_START, Lifecycle.Event.ON_RESUME events, as a first activity moves through these events. Lifecycle.Event.ON_PAUSE, Lifecycle.Event.ON_STOP, events will be dispatched with a delay after a last activity passed through them. This delay is long enough to guarantee that ProcessLifecycleOwner won't send any events if activities are destroyed and recreated due to a configuration change.

It is useful for use cases where you would like to react on your app coming to the foreground or going to the background and you don't need a milliseconds accuracy in receiving lifecycle events.
