What is MIUI+? Everything about MIUI+

MIUI is a very visual Android skin that does not only look aesthetic but also offers unique features to the users, such as MIUI+, which is one of the most underrated yet cool features in this Android skin. The reason behind it is because it is not supported on all Xiaomi devices, which is a shame. So what is MIUI+, why is it a game changer?

What is MIUI+

MIUI+ feature is a desktop mode that allows you to connect your phone to your PC and shares the screen with it. It rivals to OneUI’s DEX mode, but in a different manner where while OneUI’s DEX mode offers a whole user environment, MIUI+ uses Windows environment and opens up mini windows for the apps on your device. In this way, it looks a lot more like ChromeOS Android subsystem. You may wonder, what is the difference from any of all the other apps that can view and control your smartphone screen?


This feature does not only let you view and control the screen but it also allows you to use your phone in the meanwhile for other activities. For instance, you can open up YouTube app on the PC and watch a video all the while texting a friend. The apps you open up on PC side does not occupy the phone side of things. You would be more familiar with the concept if you have used ChromeOS with Android apps. On PC front, apps open as mini windows like in ChromeOS and you can resize these windows and do all kinds of things with the apps.

You can also relay the applications you are using to the PC without losing your process, copy texts in your device directly from PC and screenshots you take on the phone appears on PC. It is much more handy than any remote control app you can find over internet, making it a quite unique and useful feature.
