Android P will Include Bluetooth HID Device Profile Service to Smartphones

Some of the changes we know are coming is a revamped Material Design interface and support for atypical display types, for the iPhone copycats that are adding notches to their phones. Now, new reports just came in suggesting the Android P will come with a support to turn your mobile phone into a Bluetooth Keyboard or Mouse at ease.

Reports also shed lights on the fact that if your smartphone is enabled with the Bluetooth Profiles support, it would be able to function as a Hands-Free Profile (HFP) and Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP).

Developers can get more information next week on the Android P developer preview here, with more information slated to be released at the Google I/O 2018 conference in May. These functions are of use when it comes to voice calls or music streaming over the Bluetooth feature. That's what you need to turn a device into a keyboard or mouse.

The feature was spotted back in 2016 in the development code of the Android Open Source Project, but Google did not enable it for some reason. Once the Bluetooth HID feature is enabled, developers will be able to include the feature into their apps, which will allow your smartphone to be used as an input device for a laptop, desktop, or tablet.

Well, Google has not confirmed the support for this device yet, however in the coming days, the giant will come up with an official statement regarding the same to support the Bluetooth HID device in the future Android update. 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.
