Hey MI Fans,
Xiaomi’s MIUI is amongst the most popular android skins with more than 200 million worldwide users. MIUI is a heavy skin on top of Android, but what sets it apart from other Android skins is its feature richness and customizations. MIUI gets updated biweekly, which includes closed beta on every Tuesday and public beta on every Friday. A week ago, Xiaomi introduced a new app ‘Mi Video’ as a system app with MIUI Beta update and now after spending some time with the app, we are here to share the features of Mi Video Player App.
Two sections are shown as soon as the app is opened, first one is named as ‘Videos’ and other named as ‘Explorer’ followed by a ‘History’ button on the extreme right of the screen. There is also a ‘Search Bar’ below the mentioned sections.

‘Videos’ section shows all the videos stored on the device. The app bundles videos together based on the first three letters, it bundled all the videos starting with ‘Xiaomi’ together in our case. Tapping on a number of videos, the app shows all the videos starting with the particular letters.

Having content from three streaming services can be a major selling point for Mi Video, as many would love not having to install two more apps. Essentially, Mi Video offers all the services that Xiaomi offers via Patchwall OS on its Mi TV, and the company claims that it is somewhat like all of Mi TV's services on mobile devices. We did not get to spend enough time to explore how its recommendations fare in the long run, but from the initial impressions, it is Mi Video that makes more sense and appeal than Mi Music. Xiaomi has also retained the easy gesture controls on the Mi Video interface, where you can simply swipe left and right to seek through videos, swipe up/down to the left of the display to adjust brightness and do the same to the right of the display for volume.

What makes Mi Video more promising is that more services are expected to be included in the service, going forward. The content creators include the likes of TVF Play, and Xiaomi also states that around 80 percent of the content is free.

Mi Music and Video will be available for download this week onward, and those who had the beta builds can simply log on to Mi Store and update the apps to switch to the stable builds. Xiaomi also states that Music and Video are just the start of Internet-based integrated services, based on which it aims to build its ecosystem in India. During the demonstration, Sahu highlighted how the company does not make money from hardware and is looking at services to support its revenue system.
