It has been just 4 months I bought the Mi TV 4 and today they launched new Mi TV 4 Pro with so many software updates + Voice Search and just Rs.5000 Extra. Will the Mi TV 4 at least get the Software update i.e., AndroidTV 8.1 Oreo Integration + Play Store + All the new content apps? If so when will they update? Will it be just like 4K recording on Redmi Note 5 Pro? Waiting, Waiting and nothing happening from Xiaomi?

During the launch, there was information shared about update for existing TV's. Please wait for more information about how and when.

No Chromecast or PlayStore for old users. This is not what we expect from Xiaomi.

They said, they will release the update for old TVs but it was unclear whether all the options will be there.
I dont think it will include the chromecast update.

Also,
Any idea whether we can purchase the new voice remote for our old Mi TV 4?
Will it function properly?

  • I guess we the users of Mi TV 4 and Mi TV 4A will only get the new Patchwall update with support for more content partners.
  • Because our TV's software build is based on AOSP whereas the newer Pro models have Android TV base.
  • How could an OTA update change the base the software is built on?
  • However, it is possible by flashing via PC as we do on smartphones.
  • Who knows? We might as well get the Android TV update.
  • Waiting for the official post regarding update from the Mi TV team.

They clearly mentioned that the old MI TVs will get the patchwall updated features, which will include play store and google cast, early next year. So be patient and have faith in Xiaomi :)
