Hello, Mi Fans!

MIUI, as we all know enwraps imperative details most beautifully in the Android world. Details - that are important to you on an everyday scale, and hence it automatically becomes super important to us. One such detail we noticed and cared to change the user experience of was IRCTC train bookings in India. Not a long ago at the event of Redmi 4A, we announced this specific feature just for you Indian Mi fans with a little sneak peek, 'Smart IRCTC SMS feature', as we call it. If you haven't yet updated to 7.6.29, update your phone today.

After Caller ID for SMS, messaging app now has one more element of smartness in the form of Smart IRCTC SMS feature. It will be exclusive just for the IRCTC bookings in India. It basically transforms the boring journey confirmation text SMS - containing PNR, train number, time of departure & destination details, in a neat ticket-like format which is very much eye-appealing & at the same time it arranges information in the best way possible. Check out the comparison below.

Text Format vs Smart IRCTC SMS

Details like train number, date & time of journey will cover the top part; while PNR will sit in the middle with your name. Coach number, fare and seat details will be in the bottom part of the ticket. Many thanks to MIUI beta tester Siva abhi for providing screenshots.

While this is for the IRCTC bookings, we are sure that our Mi fans will have many more smart ideas like this, why don’t you share with us all in the comments below? For anything else meet us in the MIUI Feedback or MIUI general section.

Do I have to enable this somewhere?
No, it will be there by default.

What if I want to switch to plain SMS format?
Just click on the ticket and it will switch to plain SMS format.

What about previous text messages received from IRCTC?
It will be available for both past and upcoming bookings SMSes.

When will It be available in stable ROM?
It just got introduced in MIUI Developer ROM and will be available in stable ROM very soon.
