  • There are paid apps that are on sale for free

As a matter of fact, numerous new features Google is highlighting in Android P are, dare we say, a bit boring.

So far, we have heard that the new Android OS will come with support for iPhone X-like "notch" and it could also natively support Iris Scanner. This will allow your Android P powered handset to be used as a QWERTY keyboard or mouse using Bluetooth.

To be able to use your phone as a wireless mouse or a keyboard, the operating system needs to have a Bluetooth HID profile integrated in the Bluetooth stack.

The Congress leader later tweeted that a united Opposition can force the Centre "to do justice to the people of Andhra [Pradesh]". Further, the Chief Minister refused to compromise on the matters of the state interest citing the State Reorganization Act.

Google is expected to drop the Android P Developer Preview version for Pixel devices sometime in mid-March.

Having said that, there are some root-enabled apps now available on Google Play Store that allow you to enable Bluetooth HID support and use you phones as a Bluetooth keyboard. 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. These functions are of use when it comes to voice calls or music streaming over the Bluetooth feature. With this feature enabled, it will allow your phone to tell the device that your phone is connected to that your phone is a mouse, keyboard, joystick or more depending on the profile sent. If one wishes to get the functionality and use them on the smartphone, one can download the root-enabled apps which are available on the Google Play Store, of which our recommendation goes for True Mouse/KB or Bluetooth+.
