Hello, Mi Fans!

MIUI 8 is just getting better and better especially with more optimizational approach & less heavy inclusions. In recent weeks two more such feature were included in Global Developer ROM intended to accomplish the above said design, if you haven’t yet updated to the latest available update then fire up your updater app or you can even fetch the links for 7.4.13 here.

Switches in Search Results

Indeed a very well thought inclusion to perfectify the search results in settings, now the search results do support quick switches too. Included in 7.4.13 "switches in search results" feature is one more step towards the lesser step goal intensive design policy, before this we only used to get search results, regardless of their nature; but from now on if any particular result supports toggle like action attached, then you can just activate it right from the result page.

How do I activate it?
  • There’s nothing special you have to turn on for this feature to work, it is now embedded in.

To make this more clear let's take example of search term ‘wifi’ in the settings app search, with and without the feature and you will know the difference. As you can see this design will sure save you the extra steps and time.


Auto-start Management of System Apps

The war for inclusion of productive apps inbuilt is never going to stop anytime soon out there in android world, but this feature inclusion is a sure bold move in a direction of user choice rather. MIUI has been offering auto-start control for the third party apps for quite a time now, but from 7.3.30 this feature will expand it’s reach to system apps also, yes you heard it right!

From now if there are any supported system apps which does have entry for auto-start then you will be able to control their behavior upon start too, along with third party apps.

How do I include them in auto-start list?
  • Go to security app - permissions - autostart
  • Tap on three dots menu on right top side
  • Select show system apps
  • Supported system apps can now be controlled.

Do all this changes in design hint towards the upcoming design changes of MIUI 9? Well I strongly think so, What's your take on this? Do let us know in the comments below & as always your suggestions, feedback & questions are welcomed in respective MIUI sections of MIUI feedback & MIUI Q&A.

[FAQ]

Why some of the system apps are missing from autostart list?
Some of the system apps are tightly included with system and if they are closed then it might affect the system’s behaviour so they can’t be turned off for now. Rest of the apps might get included in a due course of time, of which I am hopeful for.

Why toggle isn’t available for every search result?
Well it depends on the nature of the search term and included action attached with
