Windows Phone 8.1 will bring with it a lot many new features and those who already have a developer preview of the yet-to-be-generally released mobile platform can try out Wi-Fi Sense – a feature that allows you to connect through to public hotspots automatically.
To locate the Wi-Fi Sense option, swipe right on your home screen and tap on Settings option. Scroll down to locate Wi-Fi option under the Systems tab; tap on Wi-Fi Sense and turn on the option that says “Connect to Wi-Fi hotspots”.
As soon as you put a tick mark on that option, you will see an ‘edit info’ button enabled. Tap on that and enter your name, email address and phone number. This will ensure that Wi-Fi sense will pass on the required information to the hotspot if required without bothering you.
That’s about it! You are all set to connect to a large number of public Wi-Fi hotspots for free without you having to do anything.
