A snackbar provides a brief message about an app’s processes at the bottom of the screen.


  • Provides updates on an app’s processes
  • Appears temporarily and disappears on its own without requiring the user’s dismissal
  • Contains a single action
  • Non-interruptive
  • User action is not required
  • Self-dismissing
  • 0-1 actions


Snackbar with Text Label

The message on the snackbar directly relates to the process being performed (for example, files have been moved, item added to cart). On mobile, the text label can have 2 lines of text.

Snackbar with Action

Snackbars can display a single text button that allows users to take action on a process performed by the app. To distinguish the action from the text label, the action text should be tinted.
