Can I tether my Kindle Fire to my Android phone? (updated)
If you are asking: Can I tether my kindle fire to my android phone? We have the answer for you! Both the Kindle Fire and the newer Kindle Fire HD can connect to the Internet through Wi-Fi hotspots. Kindle Fires are an affordable Android tablet that can be handy for employees who require a tiny, Internet-connected gadget. Although the Kindle Fire has a 3G connection option (and the Fire HD has a 4G connection option), still each device with a connection costs your company money. If your staff already have Android phones, you can get away with a Wi-Fi-only connection on the Kindle Fires by tethering them to the Android phone, which can also act as a Wi-Fi hotspot. Let’s dive into Amazon fire phone tethering!
Creating a Wi-Fi Hotspot
- On your phone’s home screen, proceed to tap the “Settings” app.
- Tethering & portable hotspot may be found under “Wireless & networks,” then “Tethering & portable hotspot.”
- Toggle the “Portable Wi-Fi Hotspot” option on.
Your phone will begin broadcasting its Wi-Fi network name after a few seconds, which you may change by touching and entering a new one. The status icon in the system bar will let you know if the Wi-Fi hotspot is active.
Connecting to Kindle Fire
- On the “Home” screen, tap the “Quick Settings” icon in the top right corner.
- Choose “Wi-Fi.”
- Make sure the slider switch is turned on. A list of available networks appears after a few moments.
- Select the desired network by tapping its name.
- Select the network that corresponds to Step 3 of the preceding section if you’re connecting to your Android phone’s hotspot.
- If the network password is required, type it in. A lock icon will appear next to network names that require a password.
- To finalize the connection, tap “Connect.” When this network is accessible, your Kindle will automatically connect to it.
