Samsung and Huawei already have optimized their flagship smartphones as "minicomputers", seeing as how they can be connected to the PC monitor effortlessly. Microsoft, with its "Continuum" mode had introduced a similar feature earlier.
According to a report published on Monday, the next-generation Android P version of the open source OS will add support for the Bluetooth HID device profile service. 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.
Saudi allows Air India overflights to Israel: Netanyahu
Air India has received authorization from the Saudi Arabian government to fly over the country on its way to and from Tel Aviv. The new Israel-India route was announced by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to Israel in July.
The way this feature will work on Android P phones is quite simple - by using wireless Bluetooth technology. Right now, the update doesn't add a lot in the way of features for the average user - and Google discourages regular people from installing it - but that will change as we get closer to release this fall.
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). A device will need to be running the latest version of Android, obviously, but being able to emulate a trackpad can be really nifty for things like Razer's Project Linda. The feature can also be used to control workplace presentations or as a media remote for devices. This new feature is a step forward in expanding the inter-connectivity between the smartphone and other devices.
