Image/banner in android notification

Notifications are important part of android system interface. Each and every new notification first comes in notification area. And then are shown in notification drawer/tray.

You can create a notification using NotificationCompat.builder.build(). All the particulars about the notification are set using NotificationCompat.builder object. You can set icons to be shown, ringtone etc for a notification. But with the material design changes in API level 21, there are much more to it. Now

But here we will discuss only how to add a image to the notification.

Expanded View

 

You can now add extra lines to the messages or a image in this view. For adding a image/ banner you have to add the style in your earlierĀ  NotificationCompat.builder object.

And thats all you can see your notification with image but only on devices with API level 21 or above.
