Hello, Mi Fans!
Cleverly arranged designs have been a primary element of MIUI since the start. MIUI 9 introduced some key changes on how you interact with your home screen. MIUI 9 Developer ROM recently made changes to make this even more effortless.

Now grouping two or more apps is super easy, just select the apps you wanna group in a category, press one icon and you are done, read more about it below.

How to group two or more apps together
  • Pinch with two fingers on home screen
  • Select two or more apps
  • Press group on top right section
  • The apps will be put in a group folder and you can rename it

The feature is currently in Developer ROM only, will come in stable ROM later
