The dark mode feature is one of the MIUI 11 features that are awaited by Xiaomi users. But it seems that there is no need to wait long, Xiaomi users can now taste it.
Through its user community page, Xiaomi has confirmed that a feature called MIUI Dark Mode – The Dark Side of MIUI has now begun to be distributed to MIUI 10 users, especially for Beta Global ROM users.
Quite different from the dark mode feature that will be present on Android Q, dark mode at MIUI carries a thicker dark color. Or simply, if dark Android Q mode is only gray, the MIUI dark mode is completely black.
What has changed in Dark Mode at MIUI 10?
The dark mode feature in MIUI 10 does not only work in the notification bar, volume control, or the Settings page. This feature will also work on system applications, such as Gallery, Messaging, Dialer, Camera, Contacts, Scanners, Screen Recorder, Recorder, Clock, Compass, Sim toolkit, Contacts, Weather, Mi Video, and Notes.
In addition to the system applications, the Chinese technology giant also explained that it would bring the support of this dark mode feature to various other applications, but of course, it will be done in stages.
In general, each element of the dark mode is designed specifically to help users when using the device at night by changing the color of icons, text, and other user interface elements (UI).
How to Activate the Dark Mode Feature at MIUI 10
To activate the dark mode feature in MIUI 10, users only need to enter Settings, then enter the Display section. From that section look for Dark Mode, then activate. But if you haven’t found this setting, you can outsmart it with the Google Messages application.
Download and install the Google Messages application from the Google Play Store. Once installed, open the application, then click on the other menu button (three-point icon) in the upper right corner. From the menu that appears, then select Enable Dark Mode.
Availability of Dark Mode Features at MIUI 10
Until now, the new dark mode feature is officially available for MIUI 10 Global Beta which uses the basic Android 9 Pie. And after the beta testing, it will be launched to various other devices.
On the other hand, Xiaomi is also developing MIUI 11 which is claimed to be a unique and new operating system. Therefore, if the dark mode feature is not present in the stable version of MIUI 10, users can look forward to this latest system made by Xiaomi.
