Phone Wifi Tether for Nexus 5

Does anyone of a non root or root wifi tether app that works with the Nexus 5?

I plan to root the phone but I'm still not sure if I want to install another ROM since it is snappy already. ( I usually root to OC and use Wifi Tether )

WiFi hotspot is built into the phone as is. There is no need to install an app.

Not necessary as this is built in to stock.

Thanks guys! Yeah I was just wondering...

I don't want AT&T finding out and then charging me the hotspot fee.

I have unlimited data with T-Mobile with 2.5 gbs included of hotspot. I already past my hotspot data but still running it. I noticed if I have my APN Protocol IPv4 it let's me use my phone data as a hotspot even after I used up my provided hotspot data. If I switch it to IPv6, it bans me from using my data as a hotspot
