MIUI 12 new features added in Xiaomi’s Android OS


Xiaomi’s custom Android skin, MIUI, may not even remotely look or function like stock Android, but that’s what makes it one of the most popular third-party skins out there. MIUI is full of useful features, which are sometimes much better than their stock Android counterparts. Xiaomi also adds exciting features that often inspire Google to adapt them for all Android users—one can argue MIUI’s full-screen navigation swipe gestures is one of those features. Despite the continuous improvements and routine additions of new features in existing versions of MIUI, Xiaomi continues to bring loads of exciting new features in each incremental MIUI update. Xiaomi announced the latest version, MIUI 12, recently, and it brings a slew of aesthetic improvements and beautiful animations for Mi and Redmi-branded devices. Xiaomi also included several new features for privacy and health.

MIUI 12: Final Impressions

These thoughts are just after a single day of using the MIUI 12 closed beta ROM from China. We’ve chosen only the 12 most interesting features even though there are many more new features to talk about. Due to language restrictions and geographical factors playing a role in the availability of features, we cannot confirm which of these features will make it into the global variants of MIUI 12. The stable rollout of MIUI 12 is slated to begin at the end of June but that’s only the case in China as we don’t have a global rollout announcement yet.

Xiaomi has also shared the update schedule for the rollout of stable builds and listed the devices that will be receiving this update initially, but it must be noted that the following list only applies to China and not other regions.
