Local Search In Music Player

From now on you can perform local search in music player based on keywords from title, artist & album name from your song database right from the homepage of your music player.

1. Open the music player, click the top right search icon and feed your keyword you want to search in local database & the results will be displayed right there.

- Keywords could be anything from the title, artist or album name as long as the song file contains proper metadata ID3 tags.
- For quicker access, you can pick your previously searched keywords from search history.

Along with that, now you can control the music player volume right from the Now Playing page if you are not a fan of controlling it with physical buttons. All you have to do is on now playing page - click three dots - there you have it, comes handy at times.

Return Of Recovery UI

If you are a long time user of MIUI or own several devices of MI, then you must have noticed missing recovery UI from MI devices released after Redmi Note 3. Well not now, you have now a Recovery UI for all the supported devices.
