A patch adding support for the Bluetooth HID was committed in 2016, but the functionality was disabled for future Android releases. Alternatively, it could be a standard way to control “smart” appliances over Bluetooth – press any key to do the laundry.

XDA Developers also found that the Bluetooth HID interface has already been added to Android 8.1, which means that in time, phones like the Google Pixel 2 and other phones that are on the latest version of Oreo will be able to use this feature with apps that support it. The first smartphones to receive this feature is probably the next Google Pixel series this year, so we will just have to wait and see. However, we do know a little bit about new features coming to Android P that will make it an update you'll want to have ASAP.

So what exactly does this all mean? Although, the Bluetooth HID profile concept has been around for a while, but Google never supported it until now. 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.

Android, by default, does not support implementing Bluetooth HID, which means app developers can not create apps utilizing the service to enable your smartphone to be used as a keyboard or mouse input device. 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. As a result, users who wanted to use their phones as a mouse/keyboard had to use apps that required root.
