Multilingual MIUI V6 spied, beta testers wanted


miui v6 international

Xiaomi fans and lovers of MIUI will already be aware that MIUI only officially comes in English and Chinese, but that won’t be the case for much longer!

For years now if a Xiaomi or MIUI user wanted to use their phone in a language other than Chinese or English they were forced to installing an unofficial build in their language. Thankfully the MIUI community is a rather large and active one so these builds didn’t take to long to come about, but still it would be nice for an official multi-lingual ROM to be released.

That dream is soon to be made in to reality as screen shots show that a multilingual version of MIUI V6 is currently in development!

From the images we cans see that a number of languages have been added inclining Spanish, Portuguese, Filipino, Turkish, plus more languages are reported to be there too. What’s more, the entire MIUI ROM and default apps have been completely translated so once you set it to your language you shouldn’t need to worry about coming across untranslated Chinese text from as we do now.

MIUI V6 International

The icing on the cake though is that this international version of the MIUI ROM will come with Google Services built-in! Currently users need to install Google themselves when purchasing s Xiaomi phone, but this won’t the the case with the new ROM.

The official MIUI forum is currently asking for 100 beta testers to test the international ROM ahead of it’s official release.

    Nice, great news! But… they can’t do that without Google permission they can’t include GAPPS, isn’t that the reason all ROMs stopped bundling GAPPS, because Google owns those apps and they are not open source or free to distribute.

    I’d like to be the italian beta tester!
    Unfortunately at the moment i’m quite lacking a mi phone, so the question is… how can i contact xiaomi and tell them to send me a free mi4 with the excuse that this would be for their own sake?! 😀

    So this is an official rom rather than what is produced by MIUIAndroid.com ?
