Hello Mi Fans!
Android Oreo has just arrived on Mi A1 and I am sure you all might be having a good taste of it and getting the best of it. There are plenty of changes in Android Oreo, from PiP to New Status bar, One such change is the Notification Dots in it, which adds up as a Great change to the user experience in daily Life. Let us dive into how to get the best of it.

About Notification Dots
These are small overlays for the apps where a small dot appears over the app whose notification is pending. These have a different color scheme for every app and being displayed on the top of the app icon. You can long press an app to see the Notification Pending in it and it has a similar menu like a status bar with smaller icons below the summed up Notifications. You can also clear a Pending Notification by sliding it left or right from the menu. There are also some handy features like New Conversation or a contact name on top for a Quick Glance.

How To Use Notification Dots
  • Go to Settings - Apps & Notifications - Notifications
  • Tap on Notification Dots to Enable it

  • Long Press on Home Screen
  • Tap on Settings
  • Tap on Notification Dots and Enable it
