To be fair, floating windows is not necessarily a unique feature. There have been instances where other OEM ROMs have implemented this feature, however MIUI’s implementation of it certainly makes it quite unique. You can pin your floating windows by dragging them up to the top-right corner, making it smaller and less likely to interfere with your device usage, you can drag it around and keep it anywhere on the screen by dragging from the top, you can close the window by dragging up from the bottom bar in a quick manner and you can also make it full screen by dragging down from the bottom bar. It really is one of the most fun features in MIUI

This is quite an interesting one. We all know there are apps like Google Lens or similar that can read text from photos, search for images on internet and so on. However, if you are working with screenshots, it is not really intuitive to take screenshots and search over and over again. Well, at this point Taplus comes in and steals the show. Taplus allows you to scan any object in your screen simply by touching them.

You can get texts, or objects, save them as photos, and yes. you can save texts as photos as well, or you could search them on web. You can enable this feature via Settings > Special features > Taplus and Turn on Taplus. You can also set gesture to 1 finger or 2 fingers based on your preference.
