It must be noted that the Poco F2 Pro call recording feature is also slated to come in a future update. However, it is unclear whether this update includes it or not.
If you are using the Poco F2 Pro then feel free to drop a comment below and let us know if you have come across the call recording feature after the latest MIUI 12 update. The Poco F2 Pro was also promised the Android 11 beta update but only the Chinese variant has received it so far.
Nevertheless, considering how Xiaomi is vigorously proceeding with MIUI 12 updates, here’s hoping the OEM will handle the Android 11 release with the same energy, pushing the beta to the non-China Poco F2 Pro devices sometime soon. As you may know, the stable is yet to be released by Google.
Meanwhile, if you own a Xiaomi device and are yet to receive the MIUI 12 update then be sure to check out our dedicated MIUI 12 update tracker to stay updated on the topic.
