Instant Tethering

A feature that enables Chromebook laptop users who have a Pixel or Nexus smartphone to use the phone as the Internet connection. Although most current smartphones can be used as a mobile hotspot and provide Wi-Fi to any laptop computer, Instant Tethering is an automatic process. It is expected to roll out to other Android phones as well. See Chromebook, tethering and cellular hotspot.
