Dear MIUI users,
Thank you all for your submitted questions and feedback related to MIUI 11 in my previous thread. After reading all questions, I have chosen mostly asked questions. Hope you have few minutes to read and get the answers for the mostly asked questions posted by the users below.
Q1: Using Google dialer and Google Messages is a plan for MIUI 11 or just a temporary solution?

A: Xiaomi announced that due to the privacy laws and restrictions has decided to make use of Google Mobile Services, a bunch of applications and APIs aimed at delivering ensure great user experience. As a result, the company will be rolling out Global ROM update for all the recent devices to replace MIUI Dialer and MIUI Messaging with Google Phone and Google Messages.

Q2: When will App drawer be available on MUI11?

A: In the latest versions of MIUI ROM there is an option in Settings -- Home Screen to enable app drawer. If you are using a Stable ROM it might take some time to arrive, kindly wait for this feature to arrive.

Q3: When come the android 10 update?

A: Android 10 base for MIUI 11 is under development for devices such as Mi Note 10, Redmi Note 7, Redmi Note 8 Pro, Mi 9 SE, Mi MIX 3, Mi 8/SE, Mi9T, Mi MIX 2S.

Q4: When themes will be available again in Europe? Long time ago there was annoucement that themes are TEMPORARILY unavailable for some countries and its been over year or 2 since this.

A: I'm happy to say that the Themes app is finally coming back to users in the European Union in the upcoming months. Please wait for further updates on Stable ROM and you should see Themes app available.

Q5: Will the MIUI 11 Global beta features ever arrive to Global stable?

A: All updates which are present on Global Developer (Beta) ROM will come to Stable ROM after a couple of months of internal testing. Of course, unless developers decide to withdraw a specific feature for some reason. Please stay tuned to Mi Community for the latest news.

Q6: How to enable call recording when the calling or answering the telephone? Vanish in Miui 11 in global rom.

A: As answered in the first question, due to the privacy laws and restrictions on Global ROM. Since Google Dialer is the default application for calls now, it's up to Google to provide a call recording feature (which is being worked on).

Q7: System dark mode will be implemented in miui 11?

A: System-wide dark mode (including 3rd party apps) is available on MIUI 11 based on Android 10 for now only.

Q8: Is Redmi 4x going to get android updates? Because MIUI version is 11 and Android version is 7.1.

A: Unfortunately, there is no plan for Redmi 4X to receive an Android base upgrade.

Q9: Can we expect future update in China rom?

A: Yes, of course. Updates are temporarily suspended due to the Spring Festival in China. Also, due to the Coronavirus, holidays are extended so it will affect development for some time. Development should continue soon, please stay tuned.

Q10: MIUI 11 for MiPad 4 series?

A: Unfortunately, there is no plan for MIUI 11 for Mi Pad 4 series.

Q11: Why some devices don't have ambient display?

A: Ambient display (Always on Display) is available for devices with AMOLED display only. This means that all devices with IPS display won't receive this feature in upcoming updates.

Q12: will we get official beta version of miui so we wouldnt have to mess with unlocking bootloader and stuff and if no then why?

A: All devices are shipped with factory pre-installed Stable ROM. If users want to switch to Developer (Beta) ROM it is required to unlock the bootloader and manually install desired ROM on your own risk.

This sums up most of the questions asked by our Mi Fans around the globe.
