#88774 It already does by default. Just make sure the ESP is (also) set to AP-mode (SoftAP in Arduino) and connect to its SSID. Give yourself (the android device) an IP-address in the 192.168.4.x range and after that you can access the ESP through 192.168.4.1.

Have a look at the dozens of available examples on the internet, like (for instance) this one (scroll down for AP mode) or this one on Instructables.com
