    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.

    There is an app called mcpe toolbox which enables mouse control in mcpe

    But it is mainly a cheat client
    And I don't want to cheat so please add mouse control feature natively to mcpe

    It is SO frustrating to hit things and break blocks when I'm just trying to look around. Why is looking around and using/interacting tied to the same control?

    I don’t agree, what if you go on a server... almost 100 percent of people will be on the normal controls with a mahoosive disadvantage!

    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.

    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.

    I know right it will be so cool of you could play Minecraft pe with the connection of a mouse but me I got an Android *86 os called linage os and I connect a mouse and keyboard to it but I realized that you can only enable keyboard and not mouse and it's is only toolbox for Minecraft that has the function but I don't want it to look like cheating on servers so please Mojang can you fix it and add the function for mouse function

    This has been reported many times on bugs.mojang.com, but it just get marked as RESOLVED with the claim that it works as intended or is a duplicate of a previous bug. However, they are apparently reluctant to simply come out and state the obvious: "If you want this functionality, you'll have to buy the Windows 10 version and a PC."

    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)

    This is a good idea for me playing with Samsung DEX with mouse and keyboard and a screen that is. :)
