What Is Mobile Tethering?

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

Tethering allows your mobile phone or tablet device to share internet connection with other wireless devices. This function turns your mobile device into a Wi-Fi® hotspot or access point for your Android TV™, Blu-ray Disc™ player, camera, and other portable audio devices. Check with your mobile provider for details on how to use this feature.

Note:

  • Mobile data can be consumed when a tethering device or hotspot is connected to a mobile device. This may lead to data overcharges or slow internet connection when data usage is reached. Check with your mobile provider for information on potential data caps or usage limits.
  • To isolate connectivity issues and determine if your wireless device can connect to the internet using a different access point, connect your wireless device to a mobile tethering device.
