Saturday, November 3rd, 2018

Google added Wi-Fi hotspot functionality to Android way, way back in the days of Froyo, but it took carriers several years to come to terms with it. Now, you can share your LTE connection with a few restrictions on most devices and carriers. The Pixel 3 and 3 XL do something new with hotspot mode. You can enable the Wi-Fi hotspot while you're connected to Wi-Fi, allowing your phone to share that connection with other devices.

Android P hero

Android P will come packing so many new features that it’s hard to keep up with what’s changed. One helpful function that slipped under our radar is the ability to have Wi-Fi hotspot turned off automatically when no devices are connected.
