Xiaomi MIUI 9 Features

This interface will bring lots performance improvements and new features over MIUI 8. Here we will list the most rumored and important features of Xiaomi MIUI 9. Let’s start with:
  • Multi-window support
  • Quick-reply from notifications
  • Optimised dose mode
  • RAM optimization
  • Improved data saver
  • Always-on VPN
  • Call screening feature
  • Dual space feature
  • Dual apps

Multi-window support in MIUI 9

You have seen this feature in flagship Samsung smartphones and before in computer and laptops. Now you will be able to use two apps side-by-side in Xiaomi devices like in high-end Samsung smartphones. That will be more productive and joyful for smartphone users. Sometimes we need to have this thing and now it would be available to Xiaomi users as well.

Quick-reply from notifications in Xiaomi MIUI 9

This is another very useful time-saving feature going to be present in Xiaomi smartphones. After having Xiaomi MIUI 9 upgrade you will be able to reply notification without opening the app or unlocking the phone. Like in Apple iPhones one can reply directly from the notification panel.

Xiaomi MIUI 9 Optimised Doze Mode

This is specially to improve the battery life of your smartphones. This could save a lot of power by managing the apps uptime and killing the unused apps which were running in the background. By doing this your phone will have more battery life, faster processing as your RAM will be freed up by killing background apps. Here we used “optimized” word, so it means that previous Doze mode is optimized for better performance and efficiency. In Xiaomi MIUI 9 nougat upgrade instead of killing the background apps the apps will goes into hibernation mode if you leave phone untouched for long time and screen goes off. MIUI 9 will have the most optimized batter saving system.

RAM optimization in MIUI 9

In MIUI 9 Nougat upgrade memory used by the apps and system will be minimized, so that there will be always more RAM available for new apps to run smoother and faster.

Improved Data Saver

If you have used iPhones before then you have experienced this feature, if not then don’t worry I will explain it here. While we were using the internet on mobiles there were some apps running i the background are consuming our data, which we were not able to control in Xiaomi devices before. But in MIUI 9 Update there is a new improved data saver feature. It will let you control the data access of the apps while they run in background. It has been seen in iPhones as “Background app refresh”.

Always-on VPN

This feature will prevent the rejected calls to appear in notification logs.

Call screening feature

It will let you block the unwanted callers and numbers.

Dual space feature in MIUI 9

This will be another best feature in Xiaomi miui 9 update. You will have two different accounts in Xiaomi smartphones with desired login passwords. Like in computers and laptops you have guest account and personal account with limited access and restrictions. Same will be introduce in Xiaomi Miui 9 upgrade and you will have all contents secure and private, whereas can use another account for general use or for guest users. You can install any number of apps in both accounts individually.
