    Tethering with Xperia Link™

    If you have an Xperia™ device, you can share your internet connection with another Xperia™ device. This way, your device can connect to the internet without having to use its own connection. This feature is useful when you are out and about and your device doesn’t have or support a cellular or ‎Wi-Fi‎ connection on your tablet. Before you use tethering with Xperia Link™, make sure the Xperia Link™ application is installed and set up on both devices. Also, your Xperia™ device must have a camera with auto focus.


    The Xperia Link™ application is only supported by Xperia™ devices running the Android™ 4.0 software version or higher. If the Xperia Link™ application is not pre-installed on your Xperia™ device, you can download it from Google Play™.
