I want to start bluetooth hotspot from my Ubuntu PC and connect to that hotspot in my android phone (Redmi Note 7 Pro) so that I get internet access in my android phone from my Ubuntu PC via bluetooth. I have set up Bluetooth tethering in Ubuntu by following the answer to this question - How can I share my WiFi connection through Bluetooth?

But the problem is my phone, in bluetooth connection options, does not show "Internet Access" mode of connection (along with "Media Audio") for PC devices. Whereas it shows this option for other mobile devices.

So I want my phone to see Ubuntu PC as a mobile device so that the "Internet Access" option appears and I can connect to internet. Is it possible?
