Android wifi hotspot client connection events

Posted by: admin May 14, 2020 Leave a comment


I am connecting different devices with wifi hotspot AP programatically in my android app, How can i detect the clients being connected and disconnected and to the wifi hotspot AP i turned on programmatically ? Is there any callback event in Android API to give information regarding the connection or disconnection events of individual devices ?
Thanks in advance.

How to&Answers:

I think you need to use WifiP2pDevice
There you can check for available devices, and also if they are connected or not.

Try looking here at the available methods here


This Android Wifi Hotspot Manager Class have sample code to scan /proc/net/arp and ping each known client to detect livelihood.

You can implement that logic in a loop to emulate a Wifi Client disconnect event from driver.
