ESP-Now packets essentially are WiFi management frames. I have no idea if there's a solution on PC or phone that can capture or send those frames, but if there is, you could use that to receive/format ESP-Now frames.

Hi
I was wondering if you succeeded in connecting a ESPNOW network to a mobile app ?
Thanks

Did you make any progress on this? I guess theoretically you could use the phones Mac address, send ESP-NOW frames and find a way to look at the raw frames on the phones wifi interface. No idea if Android SDK let's you get that close to the metal though...

I guess if you want a quick hack you could add an ESP32/ESP8266 which bridge one of the esp on the network via bluetooth, then send the information to your local network, which could be controlled by your phone. Or, I don't know if it's possible, take ESP-NOW messages and send it directly to a wifi local network simultaneously.
