Ever wanted to place free calls between two devices connected to your WiFi network? With Wi-Fi Talkie, you can. This app allows users to make voice calls, send text messages, and even files, over a local WiFi network or using a mobile hotspot.
According to the app description, the app doesn’t require an internet connection to work. It can make voice calls, send messages, and share files by connecting to the Wi-Fi router or by turning your phone into a hotspot. You do not need to have an active cellular connection to create the hotspot, which makes this app useful outdoors.
The app allows you to place quick calls between users on the same network. It’s basically like a walkie talkie, except you can also send files and text. You will, however, have to be within the range of the Wi-Fi router or the mobile hotspot.
The interface of the app is pretty simple and easy to use. You can see all those who are online and perform any of the available actions. The app says it provides good sound quality even on a low Wi-Fi signal. It supports Bluetooth headset, features a speaker mode, noise reduction, and you can have unlimited number of active calls.
Usually, the app works great outside for a range of about 150 feet when it’s using the phone’s hotspot. Other users can connect to the hotspot and place calls. You can even use your phone as a walkie talkie in the forest, train, airplane, stadium, and places where there is no network.
The Wi-Fi Talkie app is available as a free download from the Google Play Store and we think it is worth having a look at. A pro version is also available that gets rid of the ads and includes more features.
