Hi developers!

Is it possible if let say:

1) Two devices are turning on their Wifi
2) They're not connected to any network. No LAN, no bluetooth, no phonecall, no internet
3) They want to discover each other devices
4) They want to communicate each other (sending simple string).
5) They don't want the intermediary devices for direct communication.
6) They are not having Wifi Direct capabilities.

How and what are the steps for achieving it?

That sounds like the standard use case for Wifi P2P for Android 4.0+. Bluetooth LE might be an option for Android 4.3+ (it doesn't require network connectivity).

Why not? Which API level are you targeting?

It's not, so that's a moot point.
