Xiaomi’s MIUI 12 beta program allows enthusiasts to test the latest features much before the stable update starts rolling out.

The OEM releases weekly MIUI 12 beta updates every Thursday but their release timeline has been changed pretty recently.


While these weekly beta updates bring along a bunch of new features and improvements, it takes some time before these changes hit the stable channel.

However, these updates are still used by many others who want a taste of new features before regular users.

Now, a new MIUI 12 weekly beta update version 20.11.5 has come out with a bunch of improvements and some features for the Mi Video app.


The latest weekly beta offers optimizations for performance and playing experience as gesture support has been added to adjust brightness and volume in Mi Video.

Also, the Video offline function has been further optimized to enhance the user experience with offline video download.

Apart from that, there is the new details page which makes it easier to find movies and comments in the Mi Video app.

It must be noted that Xiaomi has different stages/types of MIUI ROMs. Here’s a detailed guide to understand the difference.

The latest MIUI 12 update falls under the weekly beta category which indicates that these changes might be ready to hit the global stable channel except one region.

India misses out on these changes as several apps, including Mi Video, are banned in the country due to the restrictions put up by the government.


That said, we will keep tracking the development of Xiaomi’s latest custom skin so stay tuned for more updates.
