Meshenger: P2P Voice/Video Phone App With Network Support

Meshenger is a P2P Voice- and video phone calls without the need for accounts or access to the Internet. There is no discovery mechanism, no meshing and no servers. Just scan each other’s QR-Code that will contain the contact’s IP address. This works in many local networks such as community mesh networks, company networks or at home.

As contacts are shared via QR-Code. They contain a name, a public key and a list of MAC/IP/DNS addresses. By default, only a single MAC address is transferred and used to create an IPv6 link local address (among others) to establish a connection. This does not even need a DHCP server. The exchanged public key is used to authenticate/encrypt signaling data to establish a WebRTC session that can transmit voice and video.

Meshenger is written in Kotlin, and it is available only for Android devices, you can download it from F-Droid, Google Play or get an APK file from GitHub.
