The Wi-Fi Messenger Client for Android provides a native Android application for sending and receiving Wi-Fi Messenger alerts. When a handset leaves Wi-Fi coverage messages are auto-rerouted for carrier SMS delivery. Upon returning to Wi-Fi coverage, registration with the Wi-Fi Messenger Server is automatic. Full control is provided over notification methods for both initial notification and reminders. For those users with smart watches paired with their handsets or tablets notifications are received on the watch automatically. Threading of conversations is configurable on a contact by contact basis. The client is compatible with mobile handsets, smart watches and tablets.
