Instant Tethering Feature coming with Google Play Services update v10.2

Google is said to be adding a new feature dubbed Instant Tethering with its latest Google Play services version 10.2 framework.

According to several users who have received the feature, Instant Tethering will let users connect other devices with same Google account in case there is no connection – and can be seen as an evolution of the Wi-Fi hotspot feature for a single user’s devices.

Andreas Proschofsky wrote in a Google+ post, “Google Play Services 10.2 has started to roll out and it’s introducing a pretty nifty new feature: Instant tethering. Basically it works like that: If – say – your tablet has no data connection and you also have a phone connected to the same Google account, it can automatically offer to use the data connection of the phone – zero setup necessary, just a confirmation.”

A┬ásimilar feature – Instant Hotspot – is already available for iOS and Mac for the past couple of years, introduced with iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite in 2014.
