The head of MIUI experience, Jin Fan, recently announced the latest progress of Xiaomi MIUI 11 on Weibo. According to him, there are developments in dark mode and desktop animation and gestures.
- The global reverse colour of the dark mode has been in testing with the Xiaomi Mi 9 development version. The overall effect is quite good. There are some details and colour grading that can be done better. It will be available to more development versions later this year.
- The improvements in desktop animation and gestures have been in beta testing. The feedback from users who had access to the beta has been satisfactory. It is still short of perfection but it should be available for the development version later this year.
According to reports, the global reverse colour dark mode also supports third-party application interface. Well, at least, there is the option of adjusting the dark color to implement the “global night mode”.
