[Feature Review] [Overview] Sound Recording Options for Screen Recorder: Now Record Audio Internally

Hello MIUIers,

In the changelog of MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM 8.1.11, you probably have noticed the addition of a new feature called Sound Recording Options for Screen Recorder. No need to wonder, it's not a new feature, it's a comeback!

As you all know, Screen Recorder is one of the most loved and unique features of MIUI introduced back in the early times of MIUI 8. It had 3 sound source options back then - Mute, Mic and Speaker. Apart from the first two options, Speaker option helps MIUI users to capture audio from their device's internal system itself. It was very helpful for them to capture their phone screens to create video tutorials which need system sounds to be recorded.

But in the last quarter of 2017, Speaker option had been removed as a sound source in Screen Recorder app. It was due to some system abnormalities arised and MIUI Development Team decided the whole internal sound recording system to be reconstructed.

Thanks to the developers, a new system has now been implemented to the core to record internal sounds and the feature is more stable than ever. After several weeks of debugging, development and internal testing, Speaker option is back again to Screen Recorder app in this latest Global Beta ROM!

However, this feature is not available for all devices right now.
The first batch of supported devices are Mi MIX 2, Mi 5, Mi 4, Redmi Note 4 and Redmi Note 3.

More devices are expected to get this feature from February onwards.

Steps to enable
You should be using MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM 8.1.11 or above inorder to use this feature.
Open Screen Recorder app - Click on the Settings icon at the top right corner - Click on Sound Source - Select Speaker from the drop down menu to enable it.

That's all for now folks. For detailed review of Screen Recorder app, Refer Here.
