No, whole network configuration is done automatically by WiFi Talkie.
WiFi Talkie uses direct WLAN device to device connection and modern VoIP techniques to simulate Walkie-Talkie push to talk connection.
No paid GSM connections, no WLAN routers and access points, no central servers, no short range Bluetooth connections – just pure, free WLAN point to point connection!
There are plenty of situations where WiFi Talkie would be suitable for you, for example:
- At home, you are on the first floor, your wife / children is on the second floor, now you don’t need to shout, or call to communicate, if you want to contact just use WiFi Talkie
- Outdoor, to play with your child in the park
- In the cars – when you make a trip with your fellows by two cars, you can communicate via WiFi Talkie with fellows in the second car and vice versa
- just to make fun ;)
