Cannot Use Pokemon Go with My Hotspot On

Greetings! I have a Samsung Galaxy S5. Since the update on Pokemon Go, I can no longer play the game while using my phone as a hotspot.

I have unlimited data, for now, so please no judgements on that.

I would like to use the game while also letting my coworkers without unlimited data play as well.

Anytime I try to play with my hotspot on, it says I have no GPS signal. Google Maps works perfectly fine, however. When I turn the hotspot off it works, as well.

You're using Android 4.4, right? This is a common error.
Searching Google for it. There're a range of solutions for you, and you can pick up one.

I think this is a common problem not just on android 4.4 it is also a problem on android 5.0 to 5.1. I think your problem is your location history is not turn on. Go to setting and try to find this location history and turn it on I don't know why but Pokemon Go use this features to locate you.
