Hi Mi Fans,

Selfie Stick are great fun to use and a handy tool to own. Using selfie sticks we can we can click better pictures than with our extended arm, whether alone or with a group of friends. The pictures is much better than taking with extended arm, which often is quite close and we may not be able to fit all in pictures. Selfie sticks are also handy when visiting places alone. Instead of asking someone around to click your picture, you can do it own.

In this thread, we will explore how to enable Wired Selfie Stick operation on Mi/Redmi series phones.

Wired Selfie Stick uses the volume button control to tell the phone take pictures. So the phone should be able to take pictures with volume buttons even without a selfie stick. If the phone is not taking pictures with volume buttons, configure the phone's camera settings.

1] Open phone Camera.

2] Open phone Camera settings.

3] Find "volume button Function" and set to "shutter" or "capture".

4] Go back to the mobilephone camera and try to take pictures using the volume buttons, up or down.

5] If succesful, plug in the selfie stick aux cable (3.5mm audio jack) and capture pictures using selfie stick.

If not successful, check the settings below.

Volume buttons set to shutter/capture but still not able to take pictures using selfie stick-

After the volume button is set to take  pictures, if the selfie stick is still not taking pictures, there is one place to check.

1] Open Settings.

2] Open "additional settings" ->> "headphones & audio effects".

3] click on "headphone remote buttons" and select "control volume level"

4] Plug in selfie stick and capture pictures using selfie stick and enjoy
