No network needed

Standard messaging applications require the connection to a mobile network or at least a Wifi connection. With FireChat, all you need is to turn on Bluetooth and you can instantly connect with others around you. With end-to-end encryption, you can send private messages that only you and the other person can view. Create different live chatrooms and discuss a myriad of topics with as many people as you’d like. Especially popular during big events, you’ll be able to find so many other willing participants to join in on the fun.

Take it off the grid

While FireChat may be an unconventional messaging app, its user interface and overall experience are on par with the most advanced apps. Find friends, assign them photos, search hashtags and more. With a UI that is accessible and easy to use, you’ll have no problem finding friends to chat with.
