A user on Weibo wrote, “I hope MIUI dark mode will be optimized, it is really not easy to use now”. In response, Zhang Guoquan said that special optimization will be carried out. He also claims that the system will solve the mandatory dark mode of some compatible apps.

Due to the numerous complaints regarding the MIUI system, Xiaomi had to set up the MIUI Pioneer group. This group focuses on solving various problems with MIUI that users report. The MIUI Pioneer Team consists of five people, and Zhang Guoquan is responsible for mobile phone system software development. He will also solve hardware optimization issues, operating system issues, and network issues.

MIUI Dark Mode Issues – What Exactly?

The issue with MIUI Dark Mode is that it forces this mode even for apps that do not support dark mode. While this may be cool for some users, it causes glitches for many users. Also, once you activate MIUI Dark Mode, you cant switch to the light mode for select apps. This complaint is not wide spread but it occurs.  An MIUI user took to Reddit to say

“Recently I just installed the MIUI 12 update and every time I put my phone in a dark mode other apps I have in dark mode start glitching and either put the icons in light mode or put other things like reactions in a super weird horrible dark mode and I can’t see anything. The solution I have found it’s to put my phone in light mode, that way dark mode apps work fine. But the problem it’s that I don’t use light mode. Anyone has a solution for this issue?”

    In MIUI 12, dark mode worked great, I could turn it off for individual apps easily. Just updated to MIUI 13 and that option isn't working anymore. Dark mode also seems not to work on some apps that were using it previously. Hopefully there'll be an update soon.
