Chromecast, android Hotspot, no wifi

I assume that normally a Chromecast works via local wifi. But in this place, I have no wifi. Can I turn on Hotspot on the phone, get the chromecast to sign onto that network, then cast android plex to that Chromecast and TV?

    You should try and see. Have you tried connecting your Chromecast to your phone's hotspot? Give it a shot and let us know how that goes.

    This is a known bug and has been fixed by Google INTERNALLY. It will be released to the public via a Google Play Services update at some unknown time in the future. https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/62378390
