Chrome OS Devices Which Do Not Support Instant Tethering

When you don’t have access to Wi-Fi, Instant Tethering uses your Android phone’s mobile data to automatically connect your Chromebook to the internet through a simple notification shown on your Chrome OS desktop. To learn more about Instant Tethering, click here.

All Chrome OS devices, except for the devices listed below, support Instant Tethering. This list captures older devices without the required hardware support; new devices as of 2020 should always be able to support Instant Tethering. We're continuing to evaluate these devices to understand if they can support the feature, and we'll update this list as new devices are added. Even if your Chromebook is on the list below, it will continue to get other new features and improvements.
