Mi India has announced the roll out of MIUI 7 global stable build for all MIUI users around the world. The roll out started yesterday after three months of testing and optimisation. Xiaomi has been testing a beta version of the operating system since August.
MIUI 7 is based on Android 5.1 Lollipop and will be available as a simple download on pretty much every single device in Xiaomi’s portfolio. Outside of China, the update will be available for Mi 3, Mi 4, Mi Pad, Mi Note, Redmi 1S 3G, Redmi Note 4G, Redmi 2 or Redmi Prime smartphones.
The notable omission here is the XiaomiMi 4i which is expected to get the update in the following weeks. The MIUI 7 was unveiled on August 19th and it is the latest upgrade to Xiaomi’s Android-based operating system with several new features designed particularly for India such as Interactive Visual Response (IVR), which lets users skip voice prompts when using services like banking and booking flight tickets. There’s also a Child Mode, that lets parents restrict which apps their children can use.
Xiaomi says MIUI 7 has an extensive customization option and deploys colourful interface with better performance and battery saving options. The MIUI 7 also brings data saver feature currently in beta phase and will be rolled out to global stable version soon. The MIUI 7 now supports 10 Indian languages and Xiaomi says it is constantly undergoing localisation.
