Though Xiaomi’s MIUI consumes much of your RAM space, it’s still one of the smoothest bloatwares existing today. The maker, Xiaomi has launched the latest update MIUI 12 in April this year, but only to select handsets and markets. And now, it’s rolling to Indian users eventually. Here’s everything you need to know about it;

MIUI 12 Coming to Indian Xiaomi and Redmi Devices

The latest bloatware is already available for Redmi K20 Pro, Redmi K20 and Poco X2. Now it’s coming to all eligible handsets late this month, starting with the flagship Mi 10. Here are the notable features it has.

New Animations and Interface

The all-new MIUI 12 has smooth transitions and animations for switching apps and checking notifications. While it seems like it has copied these transitions from Apple, it’s appreciated for making it almost perfect. Further, it now supports multi-window too, which helps to stream YouTube videos within any app while multitasking.

More Privacy Settings

MIUI 12 has three privacy options like Flare, Barbed Wire, and Mask System. These are the levels of which you can grant access to your apps, where they’d be collecting data. Like in Flare, the OS keeps a log of all permissions to limit apps to specified access, whereas the other two goes slightly flexible, yet as per your decisions.

A dedicated Fitness app

It has a dedicated app for tracking your running, walking, cycling, and even stair climbing! It even tracks your sleep like REM and snoring times to check how healthy you are.

Alongside, it has an Always-on-display, magic clone apps, system-wide dark mode, reading more with E-ink display texture, a dedicated MIUI sound assistant and a universal casting tool to let you cast the content to any device.
