DEFAULT (source)

Default – immediately schedules the coroutine for execution according to its context.

If the CoroutineDispatcher of the coroutine context returns true from CoroutineDispatcher.isDispatchNeeded function as most dispatchers do, then the coroutine code is dispatched for execution later, while the code that invoked the coroutine builder continues execution.

Note that Dispatchers.Unconfined always returns false from its CoroutineDispatcher.isDispatchNeeded function, so starting a coroutine with Dispatchers.Unconfined by DEFAULT is the same as using UNDISPATCHED.

If coroutine Job is cancelled before it even had a chance to start executing, then it will not start its execution at all, but will complete with an exception.

Cancellability of a coroutine at suspension points depends on the particular implementation details of suspending functions. Use suspendCancellableCoroutine to implement cancellable suspending functions.
