This is the only app (well technically a plugin) that is able to control the Wi-Fi hotspot on my rooted Nexus 6P running Android 8.1. After it installed as system app (root required), my Tasker profile for automatically turning on the hotspot for my car worked perfectly!
I was using Tasker to turn on Wifi Tethering, but today I got a Huawei Mate 10 Pro and because of Oreo it didn't work anymore with Tasker, with this app and its plugin for Tasker it works perfectly! Make sure to allow run Tasker in background in settings. Thanks for making this plugin!
Seems to have issues disengaging. Not sure if this is Tasker or the plug-in itself, but be advised.
Probably fine but needs root for AT&T on my 8.1 Pixel. (I have the verizon model and can't root)
Works without root on T-Mobile not att
Took a while to make it work, but once it did - it's perfect. Thanks!
* Possible fix for system install on some Oreo devices
* Fixed Pixel 2 (XL) compatibility
