BigTextStyle

open class BigTextStyle : NotificationCompat.Style
kotlin.Any
   ↳ androidx.core.app.NotificationCompat.Style
   ↳ androidx.core.app.NotificationCompat.BigTextStyle

Helper class for generating large-format notifications that include a lot of text.
If the platform does not provide large-format notifications, this method has no effect. The user will always see the normal notification view.
This class is a "rebuilder": It attaches to a Builder object and modifies its behavior, like so:

Notification notification = new Notification.Builder(mContext)
          .setContentTitle("New mail from " + sender.toString())
          .setContentText(subject)
          .setSmallIcon(R.drawable.new_mail)
          .setLargeIcon(aBitmap)
          .setStyle(new Notification.BigTextStyle()
              .bigText(aVeryLongString))
          .build();
