Android is Getting an Instant Tethering Feature
A Google Play Services update has started rolling out on Android, providing an excellent Instant Tethering feature.
News of the update, and the Instant Tethering feature, comes by way of Google+, and has been linked to by every tech blog on earth.
Basically, this feature lets you configure a second Android device to connect automatically to the cellular data connection on your Android smartphone.
But like Chromecast, which I believe Microsoft should natively support in Windows, I feel that Microsoft should investigate letting Windows 10 users use Android’s new Instant Tethering feature (and Instant Hotspot from iPhone).
After all, adding an instant hotspot-type feature to Windows 10 Mobile would benefit just about nobody, and Microsoft doesn’t control Android or iOS.
