Hello MI Fans,

Hope everyone updated to last friday's update 6.11.3 for Global Developer Beta ROM by now, If not go here.
With 6.11.3 along with other optimizations, long awaited changes seem to be finally taking place with MIUI Music Player, you must have noticed by now.
Music player has been updated to version 2.7.10i-77-160.
If you haven't updated yet & missed it somehow, here is the summary.

New changes in MIUI Music player includes:
- New Now Playing Design
- Redesigned Menu page for more Options,
- Songs with numbers in songs list


Now Playing Design Changes:
Let's compare both the now playing styles side by side, New one & Old, here are they

Half part of now playing is consumed by now album art, immeresed with status bar icons.
Yay! more room for your favorite album art in 500x500px resolution. Start adding missing album art tags in your favourite music albums, you have more reasons now!
Scrolling left & right from album cover would open page for play history or lyrics same as before.
Shuffle, repeat one & repeat all button is now on left side of player action control.
Also, casting button along with track favourite button has been moved up to right side of now playing song title Information

Redesigned Menu page for more options:
you must have thought, hey where are the other options of share and all?
More options has now all new page of it's own with new effect, compared below with old design

Rest, now song list shows numbers in side in total list page, might be indication of more upcoming changes.

Q: I have all my songs filled with correct ID3 tags but even after the update I'm unable to see album art & other?
A: Create the new database deleting the already existing one, go to settings - installed apps - music - clear data

Q: My songs don't show song title/song information and shows only files names?
A: Check your mp3 files for correct tags, you have to fill them if you simply downloaded your songs from internet or check play store for music tag editor app based on song id & matching for doing it automatically, along with fetching album arts from musicbrainz, amazon & such services.

Q: I don't see any lyrics on side, how do i add them?
A: Even if your songs have lyrics included in lyrics3 tag data, for showing them here you have to use .lrc file of lyrics which will have synchronized lyrics.

I will keep updating thread if more optimization or features are added in music player later.

On a personal note, I'm loving this new now playing design!
I am hoping for full ID3 tags supoort soon including lyrics3v2 support rather *.lrc file.
