[Features & Reviews] System Launcher : Shake to fill empty cells

Greetings Mi Fans
How much time do you waste fiddling around with app icons on your launcher home? Yeah! That's a lot of hassle right? Developers at Xiaomi have understood this and as they value your precious time, MIUI 11 brings you with a new magical feature in the System Launcher. Now, the launcher can automatically arrange pieces of stuff for you and all you need to do is just shake your device.

Here's how you can make use of this feature...

Steps to follow:
  • Go to Settings
  • Look for and tap on "Home screen"
  • Once inside home screen settings, enable "Shake to fill empty cells" and you're good to go.

You can now simply shake your device and your home screen will be automatically arranged giving it a clutter-free look. All you have to do is press and hold on the home screen page you cant to auto organize and once prompted through a 'toast' notification "shake the device to fill empty cells" and you'll witness the magic happen. Please note that this feature is not available on all devices. Only the devices that have System Launcher by default support this.

If you have any queries, please feel free to leave comments below.

I would like to thank my fellow MIUI Super Mod Lungkhim and MIUI Mod Wrony for helping me.
