Facebook streaming with hotspot. Won’t see or connect to my iPhone 7plus

iPhone 7 Plus trying to stream via personal hotspot on phone. I’ve gotten passed the sign in to FB. I get to the “set up stream” screen. So when I do this at home with house WiFi it works. But the hotspot... we’ll 90% if the time my hotspot never appears in the drop down. I see I can refresh the list. I turn hotspot off and on again th jiggle it. Nothing. When in some magical moment it randomly does appear...and I can enter pwd... it fails, can’t connect.

Hours of trying I’ve yet to make this work. Very frustrated

Hello @sweetcave66020. If you stream from a personal hotspot, make sure you have strong cellular coverage and a data plan that lets you stream from a hotspot and provides adequate data rates. If available, see how it goes using a different phone, with possibly a different data plan or network provider. This will help further isolate the issue. Let us know how it works out. Thanks!
