Dear fellow Mi Fans

The new MIUI 8 ROM was introduced last month, and the Global Beta MIUI 8 ROM will be official releasing on 11th July for Mi device.

Well, I had already updated my Mi 5 to Global Alpha MIUI 8 ROM, and there is this interesting tips for taking the Screenshots, which I thought of sharing. The MIUI 8 have 4 methods for taking Screenshots lets start by

Method 1 - Volume Down Key + Recent Button
This method is simplest one and I believe all of us know this. this method relies on hardware keys , you do not need to touch the screen.

Method 2 -  Screenshot through Notification Panel
This method relies on the notification bar, Just pull down the notification panel and click on screenshots toggle, if you feel that the screenshot toggle is not in easy position for you, then you can also customize the position of the  toggle


Method 3 -  Screenshot through Quick Ball
You can even take a screenshot through Quick ball, default screenshots switch is present in the downward position of the multiple options of Quick Ball, if you feel that the position od toggle is inconvenient, you can also customize the position of the toggle.

Method 4 - Screeshot through 3 Fingers
I personally found this method very interesting and very simple, You just need to slip three (3) fingers at any place on the screen to take screenshot.
