Xiaomi officially announced MIUI 12 on the launch event of Mi 10 Youth Edition, and the first batch of Xiaomi devices receives a stable update in June 2020. According to the reports, the update will be released to the Xiaomi devices in three batches. Now when the company officially released a stable rollout of the update on May 19, MIUI 12 features are once again in the news.
MIUI 12 Features
Xiaomi, in its blog post, unveiled several new MIUI 12 features for the excited users waiting for the update on their devices. Here are the MIUI 12 features that will increase your curiosity to experience them:
1. Design & Animations
Xiaomi has wholly revamped its UI design for the MIUI 12, and you can see nuanced system-wide animations. You will experience an ultra-smooth UI, and the elegant motion of icons simulates a 3D curve that resembles a real-life motion trajectory. The adoption of realistic visualizations saves time and makes interaction with the mobile device more intuitive and efficient.
2. Reinforced Privacy Protection
MIUI 12 privacy protection takes the user control over the permissions to the next level. MIUI 12 gives full control to the user over granting apps permission to their sensitive information. Besides location, permissions to access the camera, contacts, microphone, call history, storage, and calendar are only allowed “While using the app.” After updating to MIUI 12, you can remove location information and metadata before sharing.
3. Dark Mode
With enhanced Dark Mode MIUI 12 features, you can see a new look of your device. In low light environments, Dark Mode provides an outstanding viewing experience with its darker color palette for system apps, system backgrounds, and third-party apps. Dark Mode lowers the consumption of power and helps to relieve eye strain. The user has an option to choose and adjust contrast automatically when the Dark Mode is on.
4. Ultra Battery Saver Mode
The support for an Ultra battery saver mode with MIUI 12 makes the power consumption less. When the phone’s battery is low, it restricts the standby time of the phone and reduces power consumption. However, network connectivity, calls, and messages will not be affected and will remain entirely usable.
MIUI 12 introduced multitasking solutions in the form of global floating windows. Now you need not constantly switch between apps. When a user navigates the system using full-screen gestures, floating windows help in multitasking. Floating windows can be easily resized, moved, and closed by simple gestures applied to the action bar. Floating windows make the multitasking MIUI 12 features on mobile devices, convenient, seamless, and disturbance-free.
6. App Drawer
MIUI 12 provides an option to turn on the app drawer, where you can see all the installed apps in one place. You can also group the apps so that you can easily find them. Since Poco launcher was well-received by the users, its signature feature will now appear on MIUI 12.
7. Screen Casting
Xiaomi recently introduced screencasting, and it is now enhancing the feature with MIUI 12. The user can now start casting apps, documents, videos, and games with a single click. You can minimize the windows that are cast on the screen. The updated screencasting will not show up notifications and incoming calls on external monitors. Also, the option to cast items with the screen off decreases power consumption.
