Helium Hotspot App Overview

Sunsetting Features

Wallet-related functionality in the Helium Hotspot app will be sunsetted over the coming months. This functionality is moving to the new Helium Wallet App

The Helium Hotspot App focuses on people who want to send or receive HNT or manage Hotspots. Other activities, such as managing end-devices and OUIs (i.e. users of the network) are generally best suited for the command line wallet.

The Helium app (available for iOS and Android) includes everything you need to on-board and maintain your Hotspot and view its activity. With the app, which also is your Helium wallet, you're able to do things like:

  • Send and receive HNT and create Data Credits
  • Add your Hotspot to the network and set your location
  • Configure your Wi-Fi
  • View your Hotspot's activity
  • See where other Hotspots are located
