Is there any way I can use the Espressif's ESP32 Module as only WiFi and Bluetooth Module for Rock64 using the GPIO Pins/Interface (e.g. UART/SPI/I2C)?

I can't find any references which would allow this functionality. All I could find are code examples for using ESP32 as standalone microcontroller

My goal is to use ESP32 as WiFi and Bluetooth Module on Android

At the hardware level I imagine that ought to be possible, but depending on what OS you want to run, you would need drivers for that would support such a configuration. I did a quick search and didn't find any.

I asked the same question on ESP32 Forum, they said using AT Commands would be the best option. I would write the drivers for AT Commands for Android

The AT commands can only be used for controlling/commanding the ESP32 like listing WiFi stations, or connecting to one and so on...

But what about the data transfer like loading a website or downloading files from the internet?
