Android P will Include Bluetooth HID Device Profile Service to Smartphones

There are paid apps that are on sale for free

Being able to use your Android smartphone as a mouse or keyboard via Bluetooth can make it easier to handle presentations or use it as a wireless media remote control. But soon in the future, it's possible that all Android devices will be able to do so too, according to online sources here and here, the next-in-line Android P could add that feature making the phone function as a keyboard or trackpad. A patch for this was committed back in December 2016, but has been disabled.

We confirmed ourselves that this Bluetooth HID profile has only recently been added, as a comparison of the supported Bluetooth profiles in Android 8.1 Oreo (branch oreo-mr1-release) versus the latest master shows that the boolean value enabling HIDD has been flipped to true. Instead, Google chose to surprise everyone with an unexpected Android P release on Wednesday, and Android fans spent the rest of the day checking out all of the new features baked into Google's newest OS. Although, the Bluetooth HID profile concept has been around for a while, but Google never supported it until now.

EPL: Hazard blasts Conte's tactics against Manchester City
This plan largely did not come off for the visitors though as City did well to suffocate the London side in their own half. Neither team really showed any signs of securing a single precious point but both went away empty handed.

Google Pixel and Google Pixel 2 are likely to be the few of the first devices to get the Android P update and access to the new features. With this feature enabled, it will allow your phone to tell the device that your phone is connected to that your phone is a mouse, keyboard, joystick or more depending on the profile sent.

Android P will join the likes of both Samsung and Huawei, which have enabled similar capabilities in their most recent devices, including the Galaxy S9. This new feature is a step forward in expanding the inter-connectivity between the smartphone and other devices.
