Enable Bluetooth network sharing on my new Galaxy S5?


How do I enable network sharing via Bluetooth on my new Galaxy S5? I know how to do it on my old Galaxy S2, but the Bluetooth option doesn't come up in the S5 under the tethering and WiFi hotspot menu.

It may not be an option. Why Bluetooth tethering when WiFi tethering is so much faster?
My unscientific experience with my Galaxy S2 is that Bluetooth is much less of a battery drain.

Yes, BT tethering is about 25% more efficient while actively streaming. WiFi may actually be more efficient if using for browsing-type activities. In any case, no tethering is efficient enough for me on the go.
