Although, the outgoing MIUI 10 beta 8.11.22/23 update was delayed, Xiaomi is on track with this week’s update. The company has published the changelog preview for the next update already. The upcoming MIUI 10 beta 8.11.29 update will address bugs that came along with the previous update and also focus on system optimization. Perhaps, the highlight of the upcoming update is an increase in the length of video clips, which means you will now be able to stretch the duration of short video clips.
MIUI 10 beta 8.11.29 update
Per Xiaomi, the developers’ focus with this update is dealing with bugs and optimizing the system. Most new updates usually have some sort of bug fixes, so this is a pretty standard practice. The company has only shared the preview changelog right now, and more details are expected on Friday. The new update will increase the duration of the short video clips from 10 to 15 seconds. While a 5-second increase may not sound like a lot, it would be a welcome change for the routine users of this feature. Other than that, the upcoming update will address the issue that caused icons to be displayed incorrectly after the font was set.
When the 8.11.23 and 8.11.27 updates were rolled out, users reported a couple of problems. One particular complaint was a touch related issue that apparently prevented the Xiaomi devices from detecting a touch sometimes. It is being hoped that the new update will solve this problem as well. Other than that, users have also reported a bleeding issue that has allegedly stemmed from a software related problem. The issue might be addressed when the stable update arrives. Apart from that, your updater app will also get a new feature after this update. You will be able to request a stable ROM update, which would be great for users who do not want the frequent beta updates
Full Changelog To Be Posted On Friday
As always, the full changelog will be posted by Xiaomi on Friday. However, the beta update might go live today but only beta testers would be privy to that. Regular users will have to wait till Friday. The download links for manual installation will also be provided by Xiaomi tomorrow. Once the links are provided, you can either go for the recovery ROM option or the Fastboot ROM option. However, make sure you back up the data on your phone before proceeding, as a clean install minimizes the chances of errors.
Xiaomi is usually pretty swift with its software updates. It regularly rolls out the new versions of its MIUI software, even if they only offer minor improvements. The company also spends a lot of time on the updates and usually rolls them out in batches to assess response along the way. The MIUI 10 has come with a handful of important changes. It is a completely revamped version of Xiaomi’s skin and the company seems to have prioritized speed by putting in a lot of optimizations. Keeping in mind the newer phones with larger displays and minimum bezels, the MIUI 10 has come with gesture-based navigation. Other changes include a new recents screen, nature-inspired sounds, and AI portraits for phones with a single camera.
