@AESQUIVEL, Welcome to the HP Support Community!


No. HP does not recommend the use of a Hotspot connection. It may or may not work. It is recommended to connect the printer to a wireless router.


If you do not have access to a wireless router, you may use wifi-direct to print.

For more info, refer to - Printing with HP Wireless Direct


I hope that answers your concern adequately. Let me know!
