I want to use 2 (or more) android phones as walkie-talkie (i.e. they talk each other without needing internet/voice call).

Of course this should work with WiFi, because it doesn't make much sense a to have Bluetooth or USB connection for this application.

I just started using the WiFi Walkie Talkie app. It doesn't have much in the way of flash, but it works extremely simply.

As a bonus, it is open-source and ad-free.

"or create a mobile access point on one device and connect all other devices to this access point."

Wifi Walkie Talkies is a free app I found. I use it round the house and garden to talk to the wife and kids.

It doesn't use any of your data, call or text allowance, it just works on your home/office wifi. No need to configure anything it just works.. Test on and Android and Backberry Z10.

Does this work without an internet connection? Your answer (and the app description) doesn't specify if it works with ad-hoc connections or if it requires full internet access.

I thought you were referencing the Wifi Walkie Talkie app, and upvoted for that app, which just works. But, this post promotes a different app.

Seems to have died before it really took off.

The previously mentioned serval project now has an android app available -

@Varrah 2012-05-21 12:24:50

And here's another app like that - Walkie-Talki by Wi-Fi and BlueTooth -

i wonder if someone has the tutorial how to make the simple mash-wifi app just like they created that app..... @Varrah

The project mentioned by BobFlemming is the Serval project, and they are also on twitter. The android application will be available soon apparently.

Thought I'd mention because not entirely straightforward to find it through the youtube link and that the twitter account isn't advertised on the site. Also I cannot +1 or comment yet so adding it as a reply.

There are many push to talk apps on the Marketplace, but they all required an Internet connection. As far as I know, Android doesn't support ad-hoc WiFi connections.

@Jan Hudec 2013-04-24 06:51:49

Android doesn't support ad-hoc WiFi connections without rooting (the only thing that prevents it is explicit check in the system library, so rooted phones and custom ROMs like CyanogenMod support it), but you can build an ad-hoc network from managed connections too and Android supports becoming AP.
