Android P will Include Bluetooth HID Device Profile Service to Smartphones

Android P will allow you to use your phone as a Bluetooth mouse or keyboard

However, native Bluetooth HID support in Android P would mean that all devices running the operating system can be used as input devices over Bluetooth without requiring rooting the device.

Android P Developer Preview is now available to give coders an opportunity to put it through its paces, test features and provide feedback to Google.

To get the new updated Pixel Launcher on your device, all you have to do is download and install the file on your phone.

New additions to the cast include (but are not limited to) Lucy Punch , Nathan Fillion , Tony Hale , Sara Rue and Roger Bart . Perhaps the new season will finally shed some cosmic light as to why awful things keep befalling those poor orphans?

Android O already took steps to make it more apparent whenever apps asked for mic and camera permissions, and Google is continuing to bolster those efforts with P. According to a report by Droid-Life, both Pixel and Essential Phone runs the new launcher easily on 8.1 beta.

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.

Android P will add the Bluetooth HID device profile service to your smartphone. And, the latest of them is something that will allow you to use your smartphone as a Bluetooth keyboard or mouse.

Back in 2014, a patch was submitted by a member of Qualcomm's CodeAurora forums that adds support for the Bluetooth HID device role.

Android P introduces a few visual updates compared to Oreo, and while this new aesthetic is nice to have, this is a disappointing change for users that like having more control over the way their phone looks. You might be familiar with some of the more common ones, such as the Hands-Free Profile (HFP) and Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP), which are typically used for voice calls and music streaming respectively. "The device doesn't need to connect to the APs to use RTT, and to maintain privacy, only the phone is able to determine the distance, not the APs", the company says of the new feature.
