How to execute a blocking coroutine call in kotlin and specify the thread

like below fixes the issue Is it possible to execute a blocking coroutine call (one that returns a value) while also providing the thread to execute the call on (I don't want to use the main thread, which is the default)? , I suppose you are looking for async(context):
code :
import kotlinx.coroutines.*

fun someCalc(): Int {
    println(Thread.currentThread().name) // Prints different thread
    return 42

fun main() {
    val result = runBlocking {
        val deferred = async(Dispatchers.Default) {
val result = runBlocking {
        withContext(Dispatchers.Default) {

kotlin coroutine - how to ensure some commands run on UI main thread when invoked inside coroutine?

To fix the issue you can do async creates a coroutine and runs in the Coroutine context, inherited from a CoroutineScope, additional context elements can be specified with context argument. If the context does not have any dispatcher nor any other ContinuationInterceptor, then Dispatchers.Default is used.
If Dispatchers.Default is used then whatever function you invoke in async builder it will run asynchronously. To switch contexts you can use withContext function:
code :
async {
    withContext(Dispatchers.Main) {
        // if we use `Dispatchers.Main` as a coroutine context next two lines will be executed on UI thread.
var job: Job = Job()
var scope = CoroutineScope(Dispatchers.Main + job)

scope.async {
    delay(5000) // suspends the coroutine without blocking UI thread

    // runs on UI thread

Is delay() In Kotlin Coroutine a non-blocking function?

Does that help The Kotlin documentation often says "non-blocking" for suspending functions to make it clear that they don't block the current thread, but simply suspend the current coroutine.
So yes, delay is suspending and non-blocking.

kotlin coroutine withTimeout does not cancel when using withContext to get non-blocking code

fixed the issue. Will look into that further After rereading the documentation on cancellation it seems coroutines have to cooperate to be cancellable:

Is it better to use a thread or coroutine in Kotlin?

By : user3261615

seems to work fine
My question is if I use Kotlin's coroutine, does it give better performance than thread?

Why and how Kotlin coroutine prevents blocking of a thread, even without "suspend" keyword?

Hope this helps Like post() on a View, launch() (usually) schedules work to be performed asynchronously with respect to the current bit of execution. So, the code in your lambda expression passed to launch() will be run on the main application thread eventually, just as the Runnable that you supply to post() will be run on the main application thread eventually. However, your onCreate() function will continue past the point of launch() to do whatever else it is supposed to.
However, just like a Runnable passed to post() could still tie up the main application thread due to what work it does in run(), your coroutine could still tie up the main application thread. It's just that this work would happen later than it would if you did the work directly in onCreate().
