Dialogs are small, versatile windows overlaid above the main content on the screen. They can be useful for getting the required input from users or making the user aware of important events. However, they block the rest of the content and can disrupt or take over the attention of the user. Therefore, dialogs should be used sparingly and intentionally. In some cases, it might be better to consider redesigning to use overflow menus or a Snackbar, which you’ll learn how to do shortly.
