I just had a great interaction with my Chromebook and my Pixel 2.
The home internet died. I'm not sure why yet. The Chromebook picked up that my Pixel 2 was close and suggested I connect to my mobile data through the phone to stay connected. I hit the OK button and connected to my phone and then hit okay on my phone and presto bango I was tethering to my phone without having to fiddle with any wifi settings.
Just a great overall experience.
Now, if you will excuse me. I think it's time to see why my internet died.
