Could you please explain how this works? 

Using Bluetooth and peer-to-peer WiFi, FireChat creates a mesh network that allows users to chat with one another. Using FireChat, users can communicate with each other over the air by sending messages and pictures between devices that are within 200 feet of each other.

As a result of FireChat’s innovative multi-hop and store-and-forward capabilities, FireChat users can create a network that grows and expands as the number of devices increases. As a result, the message can hop from one device to the next in order to reach the intended recipient.

Due to this, the more people that use FireChat, the better the network gets and the larger it becomes (unlike a mobile network, which gets smaller as more people use it).

Mesh networks are able to transmit messages seamlessly from one device to another, allowing them to arrive at their intended recipients without any interruptions.

FireChat can communicate with remote recipients via Internet or cellular networks when they have an Internet connection or cellular service available.

Messages that are public can be seen by anyone who has access to the internet. The contents of private messages are encrypted and can only be viewed and read by the sender and the recipient of the message.


  1. Messages and photos can be sent instantly to anyone nearby
  2. With end-to-end encryption, you can send private messages only to the recipient and yourself
  3. You can create live chat rooms for discussions on any topic, with as few as a few people or as many as tens of thousands at the same time
