Hey Folks!
It's a pleasure to be back again with a new thread and to interact with you all, hope you all are doing well out there. 'Good things come to those who wait' the same is applicable here too. As you remember the K20 series introduced the new Always-on Display feature. It was redesigned in MIUI 11 update bringing various new themes like "Kaleidoscope", "Analog Clocks", "Custom Signatures", and much more to utilize the AMOLED panel's power by lighting up only the part of the screen.

Listening to users' feedback has always been the top priority of Xiaomi India and the team has once again listened to us, bringing what we have been asking for long. With the new update of MIUI in the K20 series, now it features a Custom Always On Display feature on the Flagship Killer. Custom AOD will let you set any picture as Always On Display, giving more personal choices to the table along with the default styles.

✒ What's new:
  • [Added] Customise any picture into the always-on display

✒ How to enable this feature:
  • Go to Settings
  • Click on Always-on display & Lock screen
  • Turn on Ambient Display and click on the style

  • Scroll down to select the background and click on + sign
  • Click on the + sign again and select the desired photo

  • Choose "Text color", "Clock position", "Show Battery Status and Notifications" accordingly

  • Click on Apply

Voila the new custom aod is applied

✒ How to Update:
  • Go to settings
  • System apps updater - Update it / Also can check under "Get apps - me - App Update"

What are you going to keep as always on display? Show us in the comments below

For now, this feature is only available for K20 And K20 pro users with update version no: 1.8.226. Have any questions or feedback about the update, do let us know in the comments below. Please note, the update is still rolling in batches for devices. Kindly wait for the OTA update and avoid unofficial packages.
