  • New Mi Mover that will help easy data migration to a new device
  • Simplified UI layout (perhaps now users shall easily adapt to it)
  • New app locker to hide notification from selected apps
  • Distance sensor dynamic calibration function to “ensure black screen appears correctly.”
  • The MIUI 9.2 includes a new App Vault that shows cards quite similar to Google Now with shortcuts, upcoming calendar appointments, notes, etc.

Additionally, the home screen is now optimised for clock widget supported themes, moving app icons into folders and more. Additionally, revamped notification shade bundles several notifications together as per the apps. It also delivers a much awaited “quick reply” feature to let users access to WhatsApp and other messaging apps directly via a notification shade.

Xiaomi has added a fix to the Gallery to compress images and reduced the number of push notifications when the user is signed out. There are a few optimisations on Mi Drop that include fixing issues with loading heavy GIF files and sorting received files by time.

As we have mentioned, the MIUI 9.2 Global Stable ROM is available for Xiaomi devices that run MIUI 9 stable. In case your device is running MIUI 5 or above you can update via OTA or flash the ROM manually. Users are recommended to back-up their data before tapping the install button.
