Miui 10 which was announced lately in May with about 20 phones from the Xiaomi company to receive the latest update. The update starts making its way to various eligible Xiaomi smartphones on the beta version. Today, the stable version of the Xiaomi Miui 10 updates is being released but presently on a few devices which include the Xiaomi Redmi 4A and Xiaomi Redmi 5 Pro.
As usual, the new Miui 10 update comes with various added features and improvements which makes it right successor of the previous Miui 9. Below are the features of Miui 10 updates.
Features of MIUI 10
MIUI 10 is a completely redesigned version of Xiaomi’s skin. The Update optimized background activity management, launch speed, deep sleep recovery, cache management, Wi-Fi, and a lot of other stuff.
The MIUI 10 is designed for full-screen, bezel-less phones. It has new gestures for going home, backing out, and checking out recent apps.
The recent screen got updated as well. It now shows running apps on the full screen without wasting any space. Xiaomi’s representative mentioned that while the current standard in Recents is a horizontal view, it is not optimized for 18:9 or 19:9 screen ratios. Therefore, they switched to a vertical list of recent apps.
Xiaomi also re-designed the notifications panel to take advantage of full-screen phones. Weather and Calendar applications look completely new, too.
MIUI 10 comes with new and unique sounds. Notifications now have water sounds. Each one of them is unique, just like water droplets, so you’ll never get tired of them. Sudeep also mentioned that “no two notification sounds on MIUI 10 are the same.” So if you get multiple notifications in quick succession, each one will sound different. You’ll hear a sound of the sand when you delete things, like notes, contacts, or photos.
Ambient noises contain beach, forest, and drizzle sounds. They’re built into a timer app. So, if you ever feel the need to relax to the sound of nature, you can just set the timer and listen to the beautiful noises that will never get old.
Using AI helps to take portrait photos with only one camera, though that’s not anything new anymore. It also works on low-light and indoor conditions. This new method is built into MIUI 10, so all devices that receive MIUI 10 (listed below) will have the ability to take beautiful bokeh photos.
STRICTLY FOR INDIA
Xiaomi also showed us a couple of things designed specifically for India. The list contains Mi Music, Mi Video, and an updated browser app. It now contains a category for applications. Here you’ll see a bunch of Progressive Web Apps (PWA) for local services. The advantage of PWAs is they’re small in size, but they can still be dropped on your home screen and send you notifications.
MIUI 10 also contains a simplified paying method. Now you can just open up the camera application, scan a QR code, and pay for anything you want.
However, the last one is an updated messaging app. Now, when you get a message from a certain service, say a bank, you can go to their official site or find the nearest ATMs/offices with only one tap. Sudeep said that MIUI has a 65% sender identification rate, so that fact makes the feature even better. The feature currently supports 100 services.
