Xiaomi has been rolling out Android 10 updates to several of its handsets over the past few weeks. A feature that has been sorely missed in the MIUI 11 ROM is Android 10's gesture controls. Luckily, an update for MIUI 11 is in the works that enables a wide range of gesture navigation controls.
The update is currently available only for the China Beta ROM at the moment for select Xiaomi handsets. Xiaomi notes that the feature is under testing so lags are to be expected. The feature will roll out to the Global ROM in the coming days.
The latest MIUI 11 update enables the following gestures:
Swipe up from the bottom for the Home Screen
Swipe up from the bottom and pause for Open Recents
Swipe left or right form the full screen indicator or bottom of the screen for Switch Between Apps
Swipe left or right from the edge of the screen to Go Back
You can watch these gestures in action at the Source link below.
If you are already on the appropriate ROM, you can enable gestures by going to Settings -> Display -> Full Screen Display -> Full Screen.
Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
