I have downloaded this chess application and it supports wifi lan game. I want to know how i can use this feature?

My friend and I want to play chess against each other he has an latest Android version and I have the game on Windows Phone 8. The Android version of chess app has two options of networking, Bluetooth and wifi, but the Windows Phone 8 app only has the wifi option.

What I have tried so far - we turned on wifi on both devices (Android and WP) and one of the phone chess app (in this case Windows Phone) is used to host a game (Network > Wifi lan > Host game > Ok). I see this message...

white: Windows phone
Wait 110 Seconds for your opponent

Start          Cancel

The start button remains inactive. My friend tried to join the game (Network > Wifi lan > Join game) but it's just showing a blank window with a cancel button.

Can you tell me how should we play this game over wifi?

    I don't see anything that suggests the Windows Phone and Android versions will work together. Also, when trying the wifi mode, are both phones connected to the same wifi network? Aug 10 '14 at 16:43
  • @NeilTurner no it is not connected to same wifi network. I have never tried a wifi lan supported game!

The WiFi LAN Game is for when you are both connected to the same WiFi network. If you're not connected to the same network, this option won't work for you - there may be an alternate game that allows playing across the Internet, but this particular game doesn't appear to support that.
