  • In the Android operating system, an intent is a software mechanism that enables users to coordinate the actions of many activities in order to complete a job. In the Android development environment, an intent is a message object that allows for late runtime binding between the code in separate applications.
  • Its most important application is in the start-up of activities, when it acts as a glue connecting them: Intents are a message system that facilitates collaboration and component reuse between applications.
  • An intent is a passive data structure that stores an abstract description of a task to be completed.
  • 'Your aim is to turn on the light, and to accomplish so, you perform the action of turning the switch to the On position,' according to For Dummies.
