Connecting a Smartphone Hotspot to a Chromebook

In a remote learning situation, many students may not have a reliable internet connection at their home to complete their school work, and many of these students may turn to using their smartphone, or parent’s smartphone, as a hotspot. The hotspot feature allows the smartphone to broadcast a wireless signal that the Chromebook or other wifi capable device can connect to. When the device is connected to the hotspot, the student will be able to access the internet.
