Hello Mi Fans,

We are approaching near to the christmas and seems like our developers are on roll to execute suggestions of dear Mi fans with a rocket speed week by week. Just now you got your favourite feature of Font customization back, like that there had been many common suggestions called up with such high noise which are finally seeing the light of the day.

In an ongoing series of feature review, in today’s article we’ll talk about new features which got introduced recently, if in case you missed it you can find the latest Developer ROM 6.12.15 HERE or just fire up your updater app and you shall have it.

Still feeling ambivalent to update? then keep reading and decide at the end.

Controllable Hotspot

Earlier you weren’t able to take up the control of your hotspot fully, not able to limit the peers or not able to control that unwanted person using your data. Well, no more! From now on you are in full control of precious data you share.
Head over to settings - personal hotspot - manage devices - click connected devices, you shall see two new settings there:

  • Limit of connected devices
  • Blocklist

1. Limit Of Connected Devices:
With this you can decide how much devices will be connected to your hotspot at the same time even with the correct pre-shared key, devices after the threshold reached will simply be rejected putting you back in control.

2. Blocklist
Want to put someone on a blocklist connected to your hotspot who is hogging your bandwidth by downloading unnecessary things? well you are the circus master now.
Let him/her be connected, go to connected devices - blocklist - select the device you want to block and tap on it, confirm it when asked and you are done. You shall see that device no more now.

Actionable toggles In More Page & New Battery Saver Toggle

1. Actionable Toggles
Are you one of that user that always a short for one more toggle?
Then you go like this: Pressing “more” toggle, putting the needy one up in the chosen 11 active page and then coming back; well that sounds a quite long process.
Guess what, now all the toggles are actionable in the more page, so clicking on them will actually execute the attached action; no more adjustment is necessary for them to be active. Cool isn’t it?

So pull up the toggle page - press sort toggle - click any of you desire
Check the old and new side by side below:

2. New Battery Saver Toggle
Before this, to activate the battery saver you have to go to security app and steps to attain the battery saving, well now it’s just a click away from main toggle page in notification shade, find it in settings - notifications & status bar - toggle positions, put it up in active 11.

That’s it for now guys! If you have more suggestions regarding this or any other feature, or have any feedback  for the same, let us know in the MIUI Feedback section.
Merry Christmas!!
