    This idea deserves serious attention, it would virtually eliminate the common mistake of placing a block wrongly because you're 1 pixel off.

    if you don't have enough manpower, please let us make a pull request just like how vscode does.

    but this game is literally unplayable without fine controls like the gyro.

    one doesn't just use a fat stick to both turn around and headshot a baby zombie

    Please! I will buy the game on the Switch when you do, because I think the game is unplayable otherwise.

    Please tell us this is a planned feature... Gyro controls would help this game feel immensely smoother and up to date

    This is needed, its so frustrating when I'm crouch building across lava or really high and I keep overshooting the small area to place the next block. I keep finding myself tilting the switch slightly to get that last bit of extra precision but nothing happens. It would be so much more natural to have that included since the Switch has the capability to do it.

    Oh my gosh yes of course! It's perfect! especially with the switch's "strange" stick layout this would help SO MUCH. Also, I like the idea that the Seargent had about it having an independently moving cross like with the "split controls" toggle on touch, Then there could be three options, off, independent, and full motion controls.

    I'd LOVE this is implemented. I use to play shooters with my Steam Controller and have tried Splatoon 2 and Breath Of The Wild before, and their gyro feature is AWESOME for those precise shots. Any Bedrock port that supports gyro controls (Nintendo Switch, Android and Windows 10 with compatible controllers like the Switch Pro or the Dualshock 4) should have it!

    Maybe implement it with different options for when gyro is activated:

    *Always enabled. ("Center view" option when pressing a stick.)

    * When holding a tool or weapon, like a sword or a pickaxe.

    *Only when using a crossbow or bow.

    *Disabled.

    I think having the option to have it -or not- should be there.

    This should really be a thing. It just controls soo good with gyro and on Switch it's a standard feature. Every game has it. If a game doesn't have it it feels unnatural.
    So please add it !

    yes! it'd be almost just like playing keyboard & mouse like how Splatoon 2 is! It would feel so good to be able to play a console in this way, and only the Switch can really do that

    Please add this feature to Minecraft on mobile phones. Would be a lot easier to play!

    It would also eliminate the problem of not being able to jump and moving the camera at the same time as the right controlstick and the A-Button both are pressed with the right thumb.
