Instant Tethering for Google Chromebooks now Supports non-Google smartphones

Google Chromebooks have an exciting feature of Instant tethering, which allows the users to keep their laptops online using their smartphones. Unfortunately, the feature was supported only for the Google-made smartphones like the Nexus and Pixel series smartphones. But now, Google is now supporting the non-google Android smartphone to use the Instant tethering feature to keep their Chromebooks online. The developer or Beta version of the Chrome OS is supporting the instant tethering for some of the non-Google smartphones from the brands like Samsung and OnePlus.

The requirements for this feature to work with the non-Google smartphones is the latest Chrome OS 70 build, Android 7.1 based smartphone and the data carrier which supports the Internet tethering. If you have all of these together, the users can quickly keep their Chromebook online. As of now, the feature is not readily accessible and hidden in the Chrome settings. To enable, the users have to type “chrome://flags#instant tethering” in the Chrome Browsers address and then enable the feature. Also, the users should have installed the Dev or Beta version of the Chrome OS 70 build on their Chromebook to make this feature work.

Google has not shared any statement about the addition of this feature to the public. Also, there is no information about the number of devices supported for this feature, and the users are still testing multiple devices. We are not sure if the Instant Tethering for Chromebooks with will reach the stable build and made available to the public. If it comes to the public version, this is going to be useful for all of the Chromebook users who are struggling to keep their Chromebooks online.
