  • The new Android Instant Hotspot feature is not out yet, but its support page is live.
  • The page tells us that Android Go devices won’t work, and some devices will get more features than others.
  • We still don’t have a concrete timeline for the rollout of Instant Hotspot.

At the end of May, in an Android Feature Drop, Google announced a new tool called Instant Hotspot. The company described it as a way to instantly connect to a different device’s internet connection through one notification tap. This is possible thanks to the new cross-device services feature coming to Android soon.

Unfortunately, that’s about all we knew about Instant Hotspot — until now. At some point in the past 24 hours or so, Google published the official support page for Instant Hotspot, which gives a lot more details about the feature.
