Serverless LAN Chat

KouChat icon

KouChat for Android v0.8.0 is out!

I’ve been working on notifications this time. So now you can see who is currently writing in the main chat, and you will find a notification icon in the notification area. When a new unread message arrives, it will turn green, like the system tray icon in the desktop version.


  • Added support for showing who is currently writing, using a “*” next to the nick name in the user list.
  • Increased the width of the user list to make space for the star.
  • Changed the chat service to a foreground service instead of a background service, to avoid it being killed randomly, removing the chat history and losing the connection.
  • Added notification support, with an icon and a status text shown in the notification area. White icon means nothing to notify. Green icon means new unread messages.

Have fun :) Get it on Google Play, or download the apk from the downloads section.
