    The reason we haven't seen this is because of the cross platform capabilities of the Bedrock Edition, those playing on PC vs those playing on mobile are working on vastly different controls, and it is likely that they thought about this, and decided that in order to keep gameplay as fair as possible they decided against it. The mobile players are extremely limited in what they are capable of doing due to the limited control options, it is a possibility that they could add this in the future, but they would have to add an elytra activation bottom to the screen on mobile, and change many of the existing mechanics to meet that this mechanic.

    Well jumping and sneaking would activate the elyra and even in the other platform jumping activates the elytra and on java pressing spacebar quite a few times activates the elytra. That wouldn't change anything RIGHT?

    Adding to this, in java you can also fly under water, kinda like a submarine. really fun!

    Also on bedrock edition, you can already activate your elytra in lava, and easily fly out of that. You simply can't do that with water however.

    The thing is that on Java you can activate elytra during any moment of your jump meanwhile on Bedrock, you can only activate elytra while descending after a jump which gives player only half the time to get in fly mode as compared to those on java
