SessionProvider

public abstract class SessionProvider extends Object

An abstract base class for performing session construction. The SDK uses a subclass of SessionProvider to construct CastSession internally. If your app wants to support other types of Session then you should subclass this class. Subclasses must implement createSession(String) and isSessionRecoverable(), which will be called by the Cast SDK during the lifecycle of the session. All methods must be called from the main thread.
