Users of Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, or Nexus 6P running Android 7.1.1 will be able to access the new Instant Tethering feature. On the other hand, the receiving device will need to be a Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Pixel C, or Nexus 9 running Android 6.0 and up.

Google’s Product Manage, Omri Amarillo wrote in Product Forum, When you unlock a tablet such as the Pixel C, it will notice if there is no internet connection available and will ask your Pixel phone if it has internet and battery life. If it does, we will give you an option to enable a secure hotspot and pair automatically, without even taking your phone out of your pocket.
