Android is the most widely used mobile operating system in the world. Nowadays mobile devices are equipped with many modules like Bluetooth, WiFi, and sensors. There is also a module of a hotspot which turns the device into a signal transmitter. Hotspot is the feature in Android devices which allows sharing of mobile data to other devices wirelessly.
