Welcome back to my thorough review of this week Xiaomi.EU beta ROM! Please report and confirmed if you encountered same issues too. Now let's get started!
1. New Sound Assistant feature.
Change multiple apps media volume and play two or more media sounds at the same time (for SD 845+)
2. New Partial Screenshot feature.
Take partial screenshot by press and hold 3 fingers by default.
3. Added option to enable AOD when lying in the dark.
Automatically turn off AOD when device lies in the dark for a long time.
4. Added option to enable global icon animations.
Render animations on third party app icons
5. Floating window for all apps in GAME TURBO.
All apps are added into floating window shortcuts on GAME TURBO panel.
6. Shortcuts to uninstall multiple games on GAME TURBO.
You now can uninstall games directly from GAME TURBO settings page.
(Chinese characters can be seen here)
Darkened status bar happens in apps that are forcely being turned on the dark mode.
1. Fix split screen/floating window apps unlocking issue.
Now you can unlock apps by swiping down to expand the floating window.
2. Fix notifications buttons padding incorrectly displayed for certain third-party apps
3. Same as listed down on official changelog.
1. Picture in Picture (PiP) broke.
Youtube and other apps that support PiP can't be activated properly in small PiP window (When using full screen gestures).
2. Black screen on video panel when minimizing app to floating window.
Steps to reproduce: Play Youtube video, swipe up to float the app, and black screen will emerge.
3. Dynamic font-weight feature doesn't work in Second Space (Make the entire UI appears thin).
Really wonderful update! Last week I am wondering whether Sound Assistant will come to Mi 8, now they deliver it! Plus fixing the floating window apps unlocking feature really improve my UX especially when playing games. For the dark mode issue, I will cross the issue here because Xiaomi dev is definitely improving them.
