MIUI 12 camera features, Floating windows, & animated icons: Xiaomi devices that will receive the features

Xiaomi has started rolling out the stable version of MIUI 12 update to the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro in China. The global MIUI 12 update is also up and running, albeit in the beta stable version.

Only a handful of devices that include the Mi 9, Mi 9T, Mi 9T Pro, Redmi K20, and Redmi K20 Pro have access to the new MIUI 12 update outside China. The party is growing bigger, though, with the recruitment of new members ongoing.

The likes of Redmi Note 8 Pro, Redmi Note 7/7S/7 Pro, and Pocophone F1 have been invited to try the MIUI 12 beta stable ahead of the wider rollout, most likely in July.

Unless you just rose from the dead, you must have heard a thing or two regarding the many features Xiaomi has crammed into the new MIUI 12 update.

Plenty of new camera features are in there, including custom function layout, magic clone, a panel-based UI, Camera Interface color and Shutter sounds, voice shutter, subtitles, and more.

There are also other features like animated icons and floating windows. Below is what Xiaomi has to say about the latter.

Unfortunately, floating windows and animated icons, alongside some camera features, won’t be available for every Xiaomi (Redmi) device that gets upgraded to MIUI 12.

If you own any of the newer Mi, Redmi, or Poco devices, there shouldn’t be any issues enjoying these new MIUI 12 features once the update arrives.

The affected are those on older devices like the Redmi 6, Redmi 6A, and Redmi 6 Pro, Redmi Note 5, Redmi Note 5 Pro, Redmi Y2/ Redmi S2, Mi MIX 2, Redmi Note 6 Pro and Redmi 7A (floating windows and animated icons).
