Hello, Mi Fans!
While the barrier of hardware manufacturing is already being removed, the embarking journey towards the technical sophistication and user experience free from skeuomorphism will be aggressively dominated by a provision of intelligent software services in the upcoming era; and MIUI 9 Global proves that.

With the introduction of MIUI 9, we aren’t just setting out for a better and lightning fast system. Instead, we aimed to create a fundamentally new medium, a new system for you with the structured built-in functions, that are not only irreplaceable but also adds value to your life. The launch of MIUI 9 Global Stable adds one more precious value to it, a system which is truly globalized and localized for international users!

Lightning fast system
When creating MIUI 9, our core goal was to improve overall user experience. We made changes to open apps faster, optimized system animations and added automated tasks to clear cache, created a new file system, and redefined how MIUI handles RAM. Lightning Fast is the best way to describe the MIUI 9, but we also improved smoothness, stability, and power efficiency.

System optimization
We have done dozens of under the hood changes to optimize the system to live up to its slogan. It includes: New file system, Cache management, Core congestion control, Real-time defragmentation and much more, check out all the optimizations below.

Accelerated start-up
MIUI 9 will accelerate application opening, not only it will open an application faster at boot but it has 3 better optimizations, which are: Optimized Haptic Feedback, Intelligent CPU Acceleration, Optimized Thread Scheduling, check the below video for more.

Dynamic resource allocation
MIUI 9 comes with many imperative changes under the hood with the aim to achieve the faster user experience possible, one such feature is 'Dynamic Resource Allocation'. Let's understand how this feature prioritizes in-use apps for a fluid experience overall. When you open a lot of applications on your smartphone, every active application or service tries to take as much as system resources possible, thereby causing other applications to stack, with MIUI 9's dynamic resource allocation open apps faster.

Notification shade
The new Notification shade now presents information in a more concise and comprehensive way. It groups all notifications on a by-app basis to reduce clutter. You can even quickly reply to messages without opening the app, know more here.

Animated icons
MIUI 9 takes the user experience to the whole new level, right from the moment when you open the app. Each app opening action comes to life with animated icons. MIUI 9 supports 21 animated icons and more to come. Check out the full details here.

Interactive & fresh UI changes
In today’s age, designing an app that not only provides value but looks and works the way it should is no easy task, this is certainly true when it comes to following a design language across all built-in apps for OEM custom ROM. MIUI has distinctly made its place in the Android world by providing the value surrounding the purpose of its apps and introducing new designs, iteration after iteration. MIUI 9 is no different, it offers smart but subtle changes in UI which only makes the UX behind and MIUI ecosystem stronger, let us check what is new with the UI one by one here.

App vault
So many times we find ourselves indulged in tasks and activities that not only leave us drained of energy but so overwhelmed that you can’t even work up enthusiasm for the parts of your job that you do love. That is why modern day productivity includes more than just getting the things done, we also want to create more time doing the things we love and to help you accomplish that MIUI 9 comes with ‘App Vault - Collect Important shortcuts and Info’. Know more about it here.

Gallery app - all new editing options
MIUI has always been a much more than just an OEM Android ROM, it has been an empowering method to reach the list of user goals, more importantly with less time consumption, in a more intuitive way, and above all, how to do this beautifully, repeatedly! MIUI 9 adds one more element to this, how do all this, in a Lightning Fast way. MIUI 9 introduces a whole new MIUI Gallery app focused majorly on all new editing options, aside from image viewing, cloud backup, and album management, the new image editing options make Gallery app more perfect and all in one bundle. Check out all the new options here.

Calendar cards
Success doesn’t come by accident, it grows by design. By scheduling personal development time on purpose, you are making time to design the life you want. In the era of digitalization, smartphone plays a vital role when it comes to organizing your time.

The prime reason why your calendar app matters the most, perhaps it’s one of the top tier apps which consumes more of your attention throughout the day, and so the right content there matters, rather a switching action across the apps for alignment with your own schedule. MIUI Calendar has been developed with these important elements in mind, we are adding one more feature in it: Subscription / Calendar Cards

Subscription cards or calendar cards utilize the space in calendar app to show you the information you subscribe to, it could either be a cricket schedule, to make sure you are present on your favorite couch or it could be Horoscope card predicting your day, many choices to choose from. We have now added one more card also, festival cards, check full details here.

Notification filter
Running on the line that programming and devices for the masses, android app store is now filled with tons of apps. While being pretty impressive and a great testament to the power of democratizing platforms, the increment in presence of installed apps in users’ devices comes with the many issues.

One such is - outflow of notifications from different apps on user's notification panel to the extent that important notifications also gets piled up under. We, at MIUI, are introducing a feature to better manage your notifications - Unimportant Notifications Filter. Mark them as unimportant and all such (even from different apps) will be folded under one notification, which can be called up anytime from just one click, right from the notification panel, know more about it here.

Quick silent switch
Mastery isn’t perfection, it is the pursuit of perfection. When it comes to Smartphone ROM it’s always about how quickly you can achieve the desired action without wasting time, at MIUI we always strive for better implementation. Quick Silent Switch is a way to accomplish important things much faster, like quickly silence your mobile or put in in DND mode, or schedule it for the desired timeframe, know more about it here.

Home screen customization
Smartphone home screens have always been an evolutionary evidence of smartness, a trajectory of the smartphone world, ever-changing on a path filled with physical keyboards to touchscreen UI! Every MIUI iteration came with a better home screen for easier visual conversation between the user and system. MIUI 9 also comes with changes in the home screen, for a better management of home screen proliferated with many app installs, for a more better visual conversation start between the user and an Android system! Know what changes MIUI 9 carries in home screen editing here.

Mi Drop
The driving force behind the trajectory of MIUI and the diligently crafted MIUI Apps, have always been a user feedback. Working in that direction we are happy to announce a brand new version of MI Drop in MIUI 9, with redesigned user-interface and whole new features. Know more here.

Mi Video app
MIUI 9 is not only lightning fast but it also has some new features which make you productive significantly. MIUI 9 introduces all-new Mi Video app which comes with a simple UI, manages your videos intuitively and provides new controls. Here is a detailed review of this app here.

Smart photo editing
Ever found yourself caught up in a situation where you clicked a great shot and found a disturbing background later on. MIUI 9 guarantees great shots no matter what! Experience the whole new level of intelligent editing, and remove the objects/lines from the photo and all this for zero editing skills.

Split screen
On a daily basis, we all go through one universal experience: Choices! At MIUI we want to preserve your multitude of possibilities, we don't want you to force to choose between your two favorite apps and hence, following our design philosophy of multiple choices we are bringing you something new - a new feature called split screen mode! It can visually display two app windows simultaneously and can make a noticeable difference where it matters. Know more about it here.

New themes
MIUI 9 comes with three system themes: the vibrant ‘Limitless', an elegant ‘Peach blossom’ and a minimalist ‘Asphalt’. One more theme ‘Tiny’ has been designed exclusively for India.

Button & Gesture Shortcuts
Different humans have different needs and habits, and at MIUI we believe in preserving that experience for you, MIUI 9 comes different choices of customization for different actions and different shortcuts. MIUI 9 introduces specific menu ‘buttons and gesture shortcuts' to customize the shortcuts the way you like it, learn more about it here.

We are introducing special and fun stickers you can add to your photos! And if you don't like the look, you can always remove them.
