Xiaomi MIUI 10: All you need to know
Designed for a full-screen experience
In 2018, phones even from Xiaomi come with widescreen having 18:9 aspect ratio. To make full use of the new FullView display, MIUI 10 has been designed to enhance the user experience with its upgrades in design, speed, AI and sound.
It will come with several simple full-screen hand gestures along with new features such as more content in the tiled taskbar and improved swiping gestures (up and down for switching tasks, sideways to end current task), users will be delighted with the increase in their multitasking efficiency.
The company promises that users will be able to seamlessly switch to full-screen gestures. Also, MIUI 10 will provide a much more productive experience with a completely redesigned recent apps menu showing up to 5 apps in one screen.
Responsive and fast
The highlight of the 2107-based MIUI 9 was 'Lighting Fast', this time too, Xiaomi is promising MIUI 10 will make the devices more responsive in terms of app loading and more. It also comes with two critical system optimisations—Lock-free critical path and Codependent prioritizing, which improves the overall responsiveness of MIUI 10 by 10%.
The new MIUI 10 brings a completely new system of sounds. From notifications to audio feedback and ambient sounds from an app like the timer with nature-related water droplets, rain, sand dunes in the wind on a desert, forest sound with waterfall effect, ocean wave sound and more, which soothes the users' mood rather than annoyed by notifications and calls. MIUI 10 is also designed in a way that will reduce the aural clutter.
Customized for India
Most of the Xiaomi device owners are already familiar with a personalized theme for India including the pachanga calendar, festival related wallpapers and more in MIUI 9.
Now, the new MIUI 10 follows up the region-specific feature such as the camera app doubling up as a Paytm QR code scanner, a local service page in the in-built browser with full support for PWA (progressive web apps), and the content-rich libraries of Mi Music and Mi Video ensure a great, entertaining and an ergonomic experience.
It also adds a quick menu tab to all business messages, which allows users to explore more about the service with one tap.
