First, if you haven’t already, make certain tethering works at all on your device.

Create a task with a unmarried action “net” -> “wifi tether”. Test the task to ensure the hotspot comes on correctly. If non, download Nougat Tasker Tethering Toggle plugin. Utilize that in the​ chore (under plug-ins) to turn on tethering and again test.

Once the task works, create a profile with a context from “land” -> “internet” of either “Bluetooth connected” or “Bluetooth near” as you want. In either case, specify at least the BT device name.

Create a task with a single action “net” -> “wifi tether”.

In one case the task works, create a profile with a context from “state” -> “net” of either “Bluetooth connected” or “Bluetooth almost” as yous want. In either case, specify at to the lowest degree the BT device proper name.

Thanks ktmom! Information technology worked!

Now, is there a style to turn off the hotspot and plough back on Wi-Fi when I leave the car?
I tried the invert version of the above context, tasking to plough off hotspot and turn on Wi-Fi. The tasks piece of work but the capsize context of Bluetooth near or Bluetooth connect doesn’t trigger the tasks…

Add an get out chore. Tap the profile name to expand it. There will exist a green arrow pointing to the task you created. Long press on top of the job name. A menu volition announced and at the top is: “add exit task” (or something similar ? ).

Now add an action to plough off the hotspot. And a second action to plow on Wi-Fi.

Yes I utilise information technology manually already.. Trying to automate information technology now.

How come not able to share cyberspace via BT when the phone is connected to wifi? See screenshot attached. . [Bt pairing](https://i.imgur.com/IU7YkX6.jpg)

I have a spare phone (no cyberspace or service) in motorcar for android machine and not able to tether using Bluetooth from that spare phone to my regular agile telephone. Merely mode is wifi hot spot but that will chew up lot of bombardment right? Then hoping when I go far car and my phone connects to car bt, it should then allow my spare telephone to connect to my main phone BT to get Net and then android auto music and all works through it.

Bluetooth net sharing works fine on my device (not Samsung) with the wifi connected. That is a limitation in your ROM.

I use wifi sharing on all of my son’due south devices in the automobile. I don’t usually use BT, it disconnects erratically.

Not working on Verizon Note eight, not rooted @ Step #3.

Just to brand sure, y’all did install Nougat+ Tasker Tethering Control, right?

Too, did you lot restart the telephone for good measure later on completing ALL steps even if it wasn’t working at the end of it?
Did you try going through the steps a few more times to make sure nothing was missed?

Again, I can only ostend it worked for me on my STOCK Pixel ii Xl on Oreo 8.1, and my ROOTED Nexus 5x on Nougat 7.1.2.
Besides tried and have it working on my Essential PH-one on vii.1.1 rooted and stock. Besides on Oreo 8.0 Beta 2 rooted and stock using the exact steps mentioned.

Over again, I tin can but confirm it worked for me on my STOCK Pixel 2 XL on Oreo viii.i, and my ROOTED Nexus 5x on Nougat 7.i.two.
Likewise tried and have it working on my Essential PH-1 on vii.1.1 rooted and stock. Also on Oreo 8.0 Beta ii rooted and stock using the exact steps mentioned.

Information technology’s the step 3, click play is giving error.. Root required error.

I’ve attached pictures showing what I did and that it works. Once again this is on Pixel 2 XL. Need to make sure y’all enable “Allow Modify Organisation Settings” See picture 4.

I can’t confirm it works for anything other than the 3 phones I mentioned.

Nevertheless, someone said they got their Note viii working by posting on the Tasker forums and got answers. An internet search volition probably country you lot where that guy ended up.
If information technology however doesn’t piece of work for yous, perchance y’all have some security software installed, or it just won’t work for you for other reasons /shrug

Two thoughts; this Magisk Module, or FlashFire to install your OTA.
