Soon, your Windows 11 laptop will let you start a Wi-Fi hotspot on your Galaxy phone

Over the past several years, Samsung has intensified its partnerships with Google and Microsoft. For more than a year, Samsung was the only company to provide the Wear OS 3 operating system, and Galaxy phones were the first to receive Microsoft's Phone Link function. Samsung's Tizen-based smart TVs now come with native support for Microsoft's Xbox online gaming service. Microsoft is now introducing one additional function that is now only available on Galaxy smartphones.

The Windows 11 operating system will soon include the Instant Wi-Fi Hotspot function from Microsoft, enabling you to turn on the Wi-Fi hotspot on your associated smartphone. Galaxy phones will be the only devices with this new functionality for the time being on desktops and laptops running the Windows 11 beta (build 25231). Numerous Windows users have been demanding this capability. A comparable functionality already exists in both Apple's macOS and Google's Chrome OS.

The new function is a component of the Phone Link service from Microsoft. Once your Galaxy phone and a computer running Windows 11 have been connected, you can access the phone's Wi-Fi settings and turn on the phone's Wi-Fi hotspot right from your computer. The Wi-Fi hotspot does not require you to manually turn it on or type the network password into your computer. The entire process will be smooth.

You must have a laptop or PC running Windows 11 (22H2 Build 22621), Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and the Phone Link app to utilize this function (v1.22082.111.0). A Galaxy device with One UI 4.1.1 (or above) is also required, such as the Galaxy Z Flip 4, Galaxy Z Fold 4, Galaxy S21, or Galaxy S22. A native backup and restore solution for Galaxy smartphones and tablets as well as a means to unlock a PC using the Galaxy Watch would be fantastic if Samsung collaborated with Microsoft on these projects as well.
