MIUI 9 introduces new features along with a ton of under-the-hood optimizations.
Xiaomi’s MIUI custom ROM is one of the most popular manufacturer skins around, with over 280 million users across 220 countries. A majority of users are from Xiaomi’s home market, China, but with the brand seeing a lot of momentum in India and other Asian countries, it is now offering features tailored to a global audience.
Here’s a look at what’s new in MIUI 9, and when you can start using it on your Xiaomi phone.
What are the new features in MIUI 9?
With MIUI 9, Xiaomi’s main goal was to improve stability and speed, and to that effect the company optimized over 20 areas of the interface for better performance. The result is that MIUI 9 feels much more responsive when compared to older versions of the ROM.
And with the ROM seeing a lot of usage in markets like India, Xiaomi rolled out a retooled notification pane designed for global markets. The notification panel in the global ROM comes with bundled notifications and in-line replies, features that aren’t present in the Chinese version of the ROM.
While the Chinese ROM leverages Xiaomi’s digital assistant and universal image search, the global variant comes with an all-new image editor that can easily remove background elements from photos, a new video player, exclusive themes and stickers, and a Google Now-style pane that lists your frequently used apps.
