My understanding is that it represents an effort to standardize the API for reactive implementations like RxJava. Instead of each implementation having its own distinct API, they would all implement the Flow API and therefore there would be greater standardization around that kind of code.

That’s my understanding as well. It’s directed at library/framework devs, not β€žend usersβ€œ.
