MIUI Launcher Gets App Share Shortcut and More New Features with Latest Update


Xiaomi’s custom Android skin, MIUI has always been the talk-of-the-town when it comes to the customisations it offers. Even after being a pretty user-friendly and customisable interface, the users of the Xiaomi devices have had issues surrounding the notification Shade and MIUI Launcher which the company has always tried to address. This shows with the fact that the notification UI, as well as the MIUI Launcher, have seen a lot of improvements with the last two iterations of MIUI. Now, the company has added some new features to the MIUI Launcher with the latest update for the Global MIUI ROM – most notably the App share shortcut option. Let’s have a look at what all the newest MIUI Launcher update has in store for us.

MIUI Launcher Latest Update Brings App Share Shortcut and More Features

Xiaomi recently rolled out an update that enabled the user to keep a specific part of the various apps as a shortcut that could be accessed directly from the home screen. With the latest update, the company has taken things a bit further with the App Share shortcut feature. Using the same, users can share apps directly from the home screen, meaning that if you want to share an app with someone, you can do the same without any hassle. All you need to do is to long-press on the app icon and choose the share option.

Furthermore, the latest MIUI Launcher update also gives the users an option to create a dual app right from the home screen. Lastly, the update brings about a new fingerprint unlock animation to the supported Xiaomi handsets.

It is worth noting that the changes that we have talked about do not apply to devices like the Redmi K20, Redmi K20 Pro, and Poco F1 since these devices utilise the Poco Launcher as the default launcher. Moreover, the source found out that the features are not available on the Redmi Note 4, so the latest MIUI Launcher update might not be available to the devices that are still running on Android Nougat.
