Messaging describes UI elements that communicate important information to users
Messaging uses various types of alerts and notifications to inform users of important and relevant information. They are frequently used to focus the user’s attention or provide immediate feedback following a user’s action.
Choosing the appropriate message type depends on the context of the message and whether it is initiated by a user’s action or by the application.
