Hi Mi A2 users!

As Android Pie rolls out to more devices by the day, the wait for Mi A2 fans is finally over!
Drum rolls….Mi A2 is upgrading its system to Android Pie on 18th December 2018!

Your Mi A2 can now be enhanced with AI serving as its core operating system that can understand and accustom to your user behaviour.

What’s new in Android P for Android One device?

Smarter Smartphones

It’s adaptive battery and brightness feature operates with AI, making it more power efficient and providing better user experience. Moreover, with the new Google lens, you can now explore the world around you anytime anywhere. The new intelligent feature ,Slices, bring relevant parts of your users’ favourite apps to the surface, making the process faster and easily accessible. Next time when you search for Lyft, they can see prices and real-time driver ETAs right from within their search results.
App Actions

This upgrade sports an exclusive “App Actions” feature which is exclusive to Mi A2 and other Android One devices. App Actions help users get to their next task more quickly, by predicting what they want to do next. The small gesture of plugging in your earphones can activate Spotify if that is your default action. The system learns and predicts, enhancing your user experience. App Actions are surfaced throughout Android, in the Launcher, Smart Text Selection, the Google Play Store, the Google app and the Google Assistant.

Simple and intuitive UI

With the new rotation button, you can control the screen’s orientation to avoid accidental rotations. You can also control the notification settings with the notification button! Isn’t it convenient?It’s user friendly system navigation emphasizes on gestures instead of fidgeting for buttons that are hard to press. Sometimes when the music is too loud, pressing on the maximizing button accidentally can burst your eardrums. With the new simple volume controls that are located intuitively by the side and defaulted to adjust the media volume, users are now in better control!

Digital awareness and wellbeing

Android 9 introduces key capabilities that help people become more aware of their behavior on their phones, and have more control over how they interact with them. With the added digital wellbeing dashboard, you can now have a clear understanding of your user behaviour. The cool thing is, you can also set a timer for your Apps and be reminded when you are close to your limit. The Wind down feature detects your surrounding, turning on Night Light when it gets dark and switching to Do Not Disturb at a chosen bedtime. In this way, it takes care of your sleep quality too.

So mark your calendar and let’s anticipate for the upgrade via OTA!

Yeah, non-techies tend to get the point of security patches, but that's about it, and sometimes even resent new versions as some stuff will have to be relearned...
