Xiaomi MIUI 12 One-handed mode feature with Full-screen gestures gets confirmation

Xiaomi’s MIUI skin over Android is known to be one of the most feature-rich skins for Android phones. The company has introduced several new features over the years to improve the user experience. But that does not mean that all aspects are taken care of.

There are still a few missing features that MIUI users are waiting for. One of those features is the ability to use the One-handed mode with full-screen gestures. With screen sizes seemingly increasing every couple of years, using a smartphone with one hand is almost out of the question.

As a result, just about every Android OEM has introduced a One-handed mode that shrinks the content on the screen to be more accessible with one hand. Xiaomi added this feature a while back, however, it hasn’t yet adapted to support full-screen gestures.

Users can only use the One-handed mode with the on-screen navigation buttons. Therefore, individuals who prefer gesture-based navigation aren’t able to use the One-handed mode on Xiaomi devices. But this no longer will be the case according to new details first shared by MyDrivers.

In a recent Q&A session, a person from the MIUI team responded to a user’s question regarding the full-screen gesture support for One-handed mode in MIUI. The team member stated that there is already a plan to introduce the feature. However, the team is yet to decide on a development schedule.

Also worth pointing out is that the Redmi K20 Pro is yet to receive the standard full-screen gestures support.

Nonetheless, if and when the feature is ready, it will first be added to the MIUI 12 beta builds to undergo testing. Therefore, Xiaomi users on MIUI 12 can expect to see the One-handed mode full-screen gestures being added soon.
