Users of Xiaomi MIUI 11 will soon be able to enable Android 10 gestures. An update to MIUI 11 is going live to select Chinese ROM users and is expected to be available globally soon.

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.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
