    Finally! Someone agrees! Splat2n practically required my mind to motion aiming. It would make building and everything so much faster. Please consider this, Mojang!

    Please add this. It’d be really useful for people with limited mobility. It works a treat in other first person games.

    I think that having the cursor be free from staying in the middle of the screen would be cool, kinda like how Metroid Prime on the Wii had it, or even kind like how Mobile has it with their weird circle thing, but instead it would be the cross.

    Yes please! All I want is Breath of the Wild style motion controls to make aiming more accurate

    This needs more attention. Gyro aiming is nearly as accurate as mouse control.

    Big huge same, after getting used to being able fine tune your aim in Zelda botw and Doom on switch, I can’t go back to not using gyroaiming!
    It really bridges the gap to console for me as someone who prefers playing FPSs & MC on PC. I wish all consoles games would do this!

    Would be nice for placing blocks just right or shooting a bow

    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.

    Yes, this is probably the feature I want the most (besides general parity with Java edition) ever since I got accustomed to Splatoon's controls. Joystick controls will never be as precise as using a mouse, but gyro aiming is probably the closest we can get. If we won't need to rely on the right stick as much, we will finally be able to jump while looking around without needing to change the control scheme. Aiming a bow would become less stiff, and even just block breaking and mob attacking would be less cumbersome overall. This change would greatly make playing on a gamepad more close to playing on Windows 10 with a mouse, which would make things more fair.

    I got a nintendo switch for my birthday this year. I was so excited! It wasn't the first time I played on one though. When I played splatoon 2 on my friend's switch, I felt very comfortable using the gyro to aim, especially because the joysticks were slightly broken!

    I expected to find this feature once I started playing minecraft on my own nintendo switch. it was really hard to make quick shots at players in skywars and successfully hit them, of which I was able to do on the iPad!

    The reason I bought Minecraft for the third time (java, ios, and nintendo switch) is to move on from that limited control set and improve on "my performance" when playing on the move.

    About that, I find it much easier to win skywars, and I also noticed how people on more limited devices couldn't compete XD, but when I get to use the bow, oh boy, it's really hard to aim, and don't get me started on mineplex turf wars, I didn't even took a single minute before leaving! 

    Please add this in, Mojang. You should've hired playtesters to let them comment on how to improve the game on the Nintendo Switch edition specifically.

    Yes, a highly needed option for motion controls

    I'm surprised this still isn't a feature yet, honestly. It would make pretty much everything less of a hassle. I would love for gyro controls to be an option.

    This would be an amazing feature! And any phone that supports gyro would benefit from this as well. This is very much needed!

    I dunno why they are not looking for adding gyro on mcpe. It would be best and better experience playing with gyro. They must start working on it. If they looking for high upvotes about the topic before start workin on it. It might be dumb decision then. And I don’t think they’re.
