    Please do this! It's impossible to play properly with touch controls, especially on combat

    PLEASE make this happen!!

    I have literally purchased like 12 different Minecraft accts over the years, for myself, family members, and friends. I also have it on psn. I recently bought another from the Google play store to be able to play it mobile. I've been playing it on a (2017 build) kindle fire 10, with Google installed, and have upgraded to the new (2019 build) fire 10, also with Google installed, but since these run off Fire OS rather than android, it does not have pointer capture feature, and who knows when\if it will. I have Bluetooth mouse & keyboard paired to it, but as previously mentioned, it is a major pain to try to click and drag to look, vs just moving the mouse. Please make it a feature to be able to turn on\off pointer capture feature, so we can use mouse & keyboard in the exact same ways a pc does when they are paired\plugged into the device and on\active!! I desperately need *normal* Minecraft in my life again.

    Thanks!  <3 GG

    This is a really good feature to be implemented into the game, many can't afford a computer (Like me) and would really love to have that experience. Also it wouldn't be such a loss since many good players play on touch screen, so there might be a slight competitive advantage there. Furthermore, as said previously, the slight advantage is nothing compare to third-party apps actually working to provide Mouse feedback, known as "Toolbox for Mcpe". Thats not the only thing this app can do, it packs a punch, many switches to flying to automatic hitting players within an area, which that to me is a huge disadvantage to others. Implementing this feature will reduce many players from using the third-party app and continue using the official app instead.

    If iOS pointers were better, I’d want that too.

    It's really weird because in settings it talks about button one, button 2, etc like on PC but the gameplay is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.

    It has actually been possible to do this since Android 4. I've used apps that do it on Android 5 and 7. It's not exactly obvious how in older versions but it is only a few lines of code. The main trick is you need to trap the KeyPress and Motion events and use GetSource to test if it's a mouse before deciding whether you want to handle the events. Handling the key event is necessary for certain vendors like Samsung that remap the middle and right buttons to home and back. There's two separate motion event types that you have to handle depending on whether or not a button is pressed as well. The trick to simulating capture is to use the accessibility service to move the mouse pointer back to the center of the screen every time it moves. Hiding the pointer is a good idea when you do that but I believe you can only hide it in Android 7 and up.

    totslly agreed

    and its not imposible cause toolbox for minecraft is how i used to do it but they dont keep up to date 

    so it would be better to have it officially in the game

    or at least an option to pick from the 2 (even tho i dont thing anyone likes dragon controls for mcpe)

    I agree, because I'm a pocket edition player too and I've waiting for this from 5 years. And Windows 10 players are really stronger than us for multiplayer servers. Please Minecraft team don't make us sad.

    This is a great feature but having to drag your mouse to look around seems pointless making me just use touchscreen instead. I think the mouse mechanics should be like on PC. A good feature anyway.

    I have been stuck with mcpe for about 6 years now and about a year ago I started looking into pc options for a better gaming experience. I wanted a keyboard and mouse control so that I could play faster. PCs are pretty expensive, so I thought I would get a job in a year or so. A Keyboard and mouse option would be a way better option since it was so much more portable, cheaper, and controllable. If The team gets around to seeing this, please add this feature in the near future. Thank you for your consideration.

    We are now almost to the release of android 11, and since android 8 the operating system has allowed apps to use a mouse capture API. The fact this hasn't been implemented yet is incredibly frustrating and necessary for parity between windows 10 and android, as well as bedrock to java.

    Only thing in the top 7 most voted features that isn't under review. What a joke.

    (Apart from the nether reset feature but that was silly anyway)

    I plugged in my mouse and keyboard to use with Minecraft PE fully expecting it to work as it does on PC Java Edition, but it is unusable in its current state. I would be very happy for this to be fixed.
