How to Change Android Toast Position?

Toasts are displayed at the bottom of the Activity Screen on Android Devices and are center-aligned. This is the default behavior of a Toast. If you wish to change the position of the Toast message that it's possible using setGravity() method.

toast.setGravity(Gravity.TOP, 0, 0);

This will display the Toast at the top of the screen above the ActionBar if implemented.

If you want to display the Toast at Top and Left then,

toast.setGravity(Gravity.TOP|Gravity.LEFT, 0, 0);

Similarly for Bottom and Right

toast.setGravity(Gravity.BOTTOM|Gravity.RIGHT, 0, 0);

To display the Toast at the Center,

toast.setGravity(Gravity.CENTER, 0, 0);

The second is third parameters can be used to set Offsets for X direction and Y direction respectively.
