Broadcast send

An action block that sends an app broadcast.

The fiber will proceed immediately without pause.

If the receiver class and/or package is set and doesn’t evaluate to null a specific app receiver will be targeted for the broadcast.

What data and actions a broadcast receiver support varies. Search for public documentation, or look at the app manifest for clues.

When including a file URI either as data URI or "android.intent.extra.STREAM" extra, ensure to enable the appropriate Grant flags otherwise it may be inaccessible to the app.
