    I totally agree, also, they should fix the keyboard binding issue. 

    I use a Samsung Dex Station and it would be awesome to play Minecraft just like in PC!

    I am dieing for this!
    The mouse controls are difficult to work with, Im always breaking my builds when I want to look somewhere.
    Better Keyboard and Mouse support would be Amazing Mojang!

    Yes This would be Such a wonderful thing to have I wouldn't have a disadvantage to pc players then (I don't own a pc so I can't use the windows 10 edition on one) I don't see why there's support for keyboard and mouse controllers and touch on pc but on phone there is only controlled and touch support

    I dont understand, why the controlls are that kind of different on MC PE. My Son got a new tablet with bluetooth mouse and keyboard and is so sad, that the controlls are hardly to use. He doesnt even play MC on tablet anymore, because of that. 

     

    So many "Gamepads" are big crap, but the steering in MC PE with it is ok. But if you have good bluetooth keyboard and mouse, the game just hates you. I cant understand that. Please fix that.

    This and steam controller support would be very very helpful.

    It's very pathetic, that despite the demand for it, they've practically ignored this.
    Basic keyboard and mouse function should have been implemented DAY ONE on launch.
    They probably never even read your post. This demand has been going on for years I've seen.

    As someone who wants to start making maps for the bedrock edition of Minecraft and has a Windows 7 pc, this would be incredibly useful. Yes, you can move around with wasd and you can use hotkeys, but that's about it. The crosshair isn't locked to the mouse, and despite what the controls menu says, mouse button 2 doesn't place blocks/use items and mouse button 3 doesn't pick block. In fact, it's as if there wasn't even a mouse plugged in. I have a fairly good tablet and it would nice if an app would actually support keyboards and mice correctly every once in a while.

    I whole heartedly agree that we should have support. I mean there’s already a setting in settings for keyboard ( which I think it’s there cause of the same version on windows 10) but it would be nice so we wouldn’t have to emulate

    Have they added this feature yet?

    I just tested it and still no proper mouse look controls for the Bedrock edition on Android, only keyboard works fine.

    I'd love to be able to use a mouse, but it does not work properly. The best alternative is a controller, but even that has its drawbacks and jankyness with setup. Being able to play Minecraft on a plane or continue a world comfortably at home would be a dream. It doesn't seem to hard to implement.

    I agree !

    My phone is much more powerful than my PC and I 

    1. Don't use windows 10

    2. Don't own Minecraft bedrock on windows 10

    I want to simply plug my phone to a monitor + keyboard&mouse and just play a a few hours with my xbox friends !

    Also useful on the android x86 project !

    Please for the love of god do this already! I'm losing my mind trying to play pocket edition. You hit so many things on accident it's not even funny. You ever have to murder a wolf pack because your game makes you accidentally hit one of them? For real, please make actual mouse and keyboard support.

    I am very disappointed. Very. It's stunning to me that they could encounter such a basic and insignificant speed bump and still succumb to failure. How shameful.

    I love playing it with a USB controller - but when plugging in a keyboard and mouse - it half works... the settings have keyboard and mouse settings, move works, jump works, but the mouse doesn't move the screen and remapping keys doesn't work........ please add keyboard and mouse suppord to android, that would be amazing

    Please update this and add real support

    Just tried bluetooth mouse and keyboard in my tablet after years playing java without even noticing that was a possibility and got instantly turned off by this issue with the lack of pointer tracking. Having the option to configure mouse and keyboard to play just like in PC would be awesome. Really hoping to see that feature soon.

    Quite disappointed that this has been an issue for years and Mojang hasn't done anything to attempt implementing full keyboard and mouse control or, if it's not possible, give us the reason why. Why give us control if it isn't complete?

    Yes Please!!! This would make PE worth playing, rather than needing to have my laptop out.

    If this was added, we could compete with Windows 10. I think there is an API that supports this feature. With DeX on Samsung, we would be set.
