Can I connect using my android phone as an hotspot?

I want to be able to use and control the bulbs even when I’m using them away from home without a wi-fi available.
There are some settings to use on my phone, or is it impossible as lifx bulbs could connect only to a classic wifi but not to an android phone used as a wi-fi hotspot?

I posted about a possible solution in another thread:

Does that sound like it could help you out with your issue?
