Tips and Tricks You Need To know about MIUI 11 features

MIUI 11 brings an overhauled UI and plenty of changes under the hood, but it’s still based on Android 9. Here are the Tips and Tricks You Need To know about MIUI 11 features.

Tips and Tricks MIUI 11 features

1. Force Dark Mode

If your device is eligible for MIUI 11 based on Android 10 then you can force any app to adopt to dark mode. On Stock Android, you will find the “override dark mode” option under Developer Options. However, Xiaomi is bringing the same feature as “Global Dark Mode” under the Display settings page. We did test this feature on MIUI 11 and it works on some apps like Telegram and the Security app. Besides that, you can also schedule dark mode based on your preference and that is awesome.

#2. Mimoji in Camera

Earlier, to use Mimoji on Xiaomi phones, you had to install a separate app. However, with MIUI 11, Mimoji has been baked right into the Camera app. You can switch to the Mimoji tab at the bottom and start creating your animated emoji self. Mimoji now supports head movements, mouth detection, and some degree of facial expression too. It’s not as advanced as Apple’s Animoji, but you can surely try it for fun.

#3. Ambient Display Customization

In a brave move, Xiaomi brought always-on display on supported devices (Redmi K20 series, Mi 9, etc) last year, but with MIUI 11, they are taking it a step further and bringing many customization options for ambient display. You have a plethora of options to choose from: there are animated clocks, colorful backgrounds, and not to forget, the ability to type your own moving quote. Seriously, if you are into AoD, this level of customization will make you love MIUI 11 beyond measure.

However, if you are someone who disables AoD to save battery, well there is another way you can receive notifications without burning the juice. You can enable “Notification light up” animation under the Ambient display Settings. It will light up the corners of your display whenever you will receive a notification. How awesome is that?

#4. Minimalist Design

However, if you are someone who disables AoD to save battery, well there is another way you can receive notifications without burning the juice. You can enable “Notification light up” animation under the Ambient display Settings. It will light up the corners of your display whenever you will receive a notification. How awesome is that?

MIUI 11 comes with a new Classical theme that supports squircle icon shape out of the box and I love it. Xiaomi has also redesigned all its native apps to fit the new icon shape. Finally, the apps look uniform and in sync with the overall UI. Besides that, the animation also feels pretty smooth and consistent across apps and settings. It seems MIUI is focusing on making the UI transition smooth and not just fast which is a welcome change. Xiaomi has also brought a new font that does not look too cartoonish. The font has support for Dynamic Font Scaling which allows apps such as Notes to adjust the content so that it’s easily readable by anyone. Not only the content, but the overall UI is scaled dynamically so you can have a better reading experience.

Apart from that, the UI has fewer lines and boxes to put the focus back on content. The Settings menu looks a lot cleaner and has new colorful icons to boot. Xiaomi has stated that MIUI 11 has been designed for a full-screen experience and it does feel so. You will be in for a treat when MIUI 11 starts rolling out globally from October 22nd.

#5. Kid Space

Kid Space is the touted Child Mode that was available on past versions of MIUI but packed with more advanced features. It lets you limit your child’s screen time and block certain apps and websites remotely. Besides that, you can also ask your kids to solve a puzzle to get extra screen time. However, keep in mind, Kid Space is still in beta and currently, it’s being tested in China only. So we don’t know when and how it will be available globally. Nevertheless, the feature is quite exciting and we can’t wait to test it out after the stable release.

#6. Ultra Battery Saver

MIUI has always been about offering features that are useful to the masses. While Xiaomi phones already come with a battery saver mode, MIUI 11 is offering another ultra-battery saving feature besides the normal one. It disables all the background processes, resource-intensive cores to bring down the performance, and eventually, save battery. Only the basic features are kept on like calling, messaging, and internet connectivity without background sync. Further, the wallpaper is turned to pitch black and all the animations are turned off.
