  • Android P will turn your phone as a Bluetooth Keyboard or Mouse

Android P is mostly a mystery still.

The two important features that are expected to be coming with Android P (referred internally at Google as "Pistachio Ice Cream") are revamped Material Design interface and support for atypical display types. While we think there is a good chance that the first developer preview of it may arrive this month (because Android O's first developer preview did last year), we don't know how Google is going to sell this.

Xda reports that once Android P's new Bluetooth HID is enabled, developers will be able to add the capability to their apps.

Android P may bring official support for this and even add the option of using the phone as a keyboard.

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.

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.

According to a report on XDADevelopers the Bluetooth Human Interface Device (HID) profile has been enabled in the latest version of the Android. That means app developers can not create apps utilizing the service to enable your smartphone to be used as a basic keyboard/mouse input device.

Notably, Android does not support the implementation of HID in Bluetooth stack by default. There are root-enabled apps on the Play Store such as Bluetooth+ which patch the Bluetooth framework to enable HIDD, and when combined with another app such as True Mouse/KB, you can use your smartphone as an input device. Samsung and Huawei are two companies that are already trying their hands at this kind of a feature. Huawei also allows you to use some of its phones as a trackpad in its own PC mode.
