Use Karoo as a hotspot?

I plan to travel with my Karoo and use a Google Fi SIM card in the Karoo.

I’d like to be able to use the Karoo as a hotspot, to share its Google Fi data connectivity with my other devices.

Is this possible? I see a number of Android hotspot apps; are these the way to go?

Thanks for any advice!

I haven't tried but as the OS infrastructure is all there, a third-party hotspot app should be perfectly able to set this up even though it's missing from the settings.
I don't have my Karoo at hand and I don't remember what app it was exactly but for quite a few settings I've been successful with "hidden settings revealer" type apps. They just open the settings menus for stuff like CA certificates in my case that's usually available on Android but that HH have hidden from the menu.
