Android P will let Autofill automatically work within web browsers

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

What do you think of using your smartphone as a wireless keyboard and mouse?

Samsungs latest DeX dock allows the Galaxy S9 to be used as a trackpad, a feature that Huawei already supported in its own PC mode and Microsoft in its Continuum before that.

According to xda-developers, Android P will include support for the Bluetooth HID (Human Interface Design) profile service, which would allow users to turn their phones into a mobile Bluetooth keyboard or mouse. That patch was committed in December of 2016, however the functionality remained disabled for subsequent Android releases. 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. Once the required Bluetooth code is enabled in stock Android natively, you won't have to root your phone to use your phone as a mouse/keyboard. However, the service has now been enabled (as per the new commits) and the APIs (Application Programming Interface) for developers have also been unhidden, meaning they can create apps that work on Bluetooth HID profile.

Enabling the Bluetooth feature will allow you to use various "Bluetooth Profiles" such as Hands-Free-Profile and Advanced Audio Distribution Profile that helps in transmitting uncompressed audio signals while calling or listing to music, making it a better experience.

Bluetooth-enabled devices can offer support for what are called "Bluetooth Profiles". This new feature is a step forward in expanding the inter-connectivity between the smartphone and other devices. Google Pixel and Google Pixel 2 will be few of the first devices to get the Android P update and access to the new features.
