Xiaomi MIUI 12 update new feature alert: customize app sound with 'Sound Assistant'

Xiaomi launched MIUI 12 custom UI along with the launch of Mi 10 Youth Edition in China on April 27, 2020. Bringing in tons of new features and enhancement, MIUI 12 quickly became the talk of the town.

It not only brings aesthetic changes but also adds several subtle tweaks to make the user experience feel fresh and more productive.

Talking about the features of MIUI 12, it brings revamped design, animated icons, Sensory Visual Design, Super Wallpapers (3D models of Earth and Mars), dynamic weather, new navigation gestures, enhanced privacy, Dark Mode 2.0, AOD, AI calling, and much more.

Just yesterday, we reported that a Xiaomi moderator confirmed that MIUI 12 will not bring the new set of emojis introduced with Android 11.

This makes sense as new emojis were added to Android 11 OS and only Xiaomi device that will pick up Android 11 will be able to enjoy and use this new set of emojis.

On the brighter side, Xiaomi has announced a new feature for the MIUI 12 custom UI. In their MIUI Class Vol.12 post, Xiaomi has revealed the addition of customizable app sound with “Sound Assistant.”
