A walk down memory lane, MIUI from past to present!
Hello Mi Fans!
MIUI (Pronounced as ‘Me You I’) has been a preferred custom Android based ROM amongst mobile device users across the globe. The cyclic evolutionary changes, which MIUI has been through, is a result of hard slog from developers’ side and valuable feedback given by MIUI fans. Together with the development of Android, MIUI was always on radar of tech enthusiasts and each version of MIUI was more than a surprise. Every version of MIUI excelled in features which were available on stock Android ROM then. Today, it’s time to bid farewell to MIUI 7 and welcome MIUI 8 with magnificent features and revamped UI. I would like to invite fellow readers to be my companion in the time travel and witness the spectacular advancement of MIUI ever since its inception.

MIUI 8: Multi tasking takes on a whole new level with MIUI 8!

Hey Mi Fans,
   The notification panel is revamped. Vibrant colors and toggle icons rearrangement looks really cool. The weather app notification can now be directly accessed using notification panel and there is no need open the app to check weather. The toggles can now be arranged in a linear fashion or the standard arrangement can also be set as we find it in previous version of MIUI. MIUI 8’s calculator now supports currency and unit conversions. The currency converter retrieves data from internet and the user just needs to convert a particular sum into another currency without feeding in the actual exchange rates.

Hey Mi Fans,
At one time or another we all have thought of using same app with two different account on one device with going to the hurdle of lengthy processes or any third party apps. All these worries have been addressed by MIUI 8, as we have inbuilt Cloned App feature which helps us to clone a single app on our Mi devices. This helps us to clone almost any app which requires login to be used with two different accounts including games, chatting/messaging apps etc.

How to Enable and Use Second Space in MIUI 8

Hey Mi Fans,
Let's get started with the new feature introduced with MIUI 8. Second Space as the name suggests its another space on your device which is totally different from your default setup space i.e. the one which you setup when you first start your device. The best part of this second space is that you can always have a private space on your device only for you or you can use it as a guest mode for other while handing over the device to them. Yes yes I know we have child mode which we can use while giving the device to others or we can enable app lock, but this way the person whom you hand over the device will know that its restricted. But with Second space most people wont know what they are using and have been shut out

MIUI 8: Everything you want to know about upgraded Note app!
Hey Mi Fans,
Having a Note app in our Mi device is pretty handy into our day to day life. It is very useful when you have to jot down something important and you forgot to bring your Diary and Pen. Also Smartphone is something which we do not forget while going outside, Like Me, I may forget to carry my wallet with me but I will never forget to carry my Mi phone when going out. So, Its better to have something important in our phone itself rather than carrying Diary and Pen which you may forget when needed. And trust me, Its the Pen which you will not find when needed, Its a myth. So better jot down everything in your phone and keep the info with you when needed.
