I’m trying to implement a Timer in Jetpack Compose. I’ve created a function that will return a flow that will emit at a specified rate, that I will use to update my UI. My questions is are flows safe to be
or are they light weight enough to create on the fly?

It’s not a question of “weight”, it’s a question of identity. If you don’t remember them, you’ll end up cancelling the collection of the old one and starting collection of the new one on every recomposition.
