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.

How do you enable the hotspot on both Android and iPhones and then connect a Chromebook? These short videos below will assist in demonstrating how this is done. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us for support!
