The Mi Music app is in desperate need of updates to match the aesthetics of the rest of the MIUI system apps since MIUI 12 entered the scene.
The app had started showing its age and although it received an update with several home screen improvements in December, it just didn’t feel enough.
Xiaomi has recently been busy revamping several of its apps. We previously highlighted how the Mi Community app implemented a massive update bringing a complete visual overhaul combined with new features.
And it is finally the turn of the Mi Music application to be redesigned as well. An update which brings the version of the application to 22.214.171.124 has just been released in China.
It brings the integration of QQ Music to offer a richer catalog of the most recent and popular songs.
But of course, QQ Music is a China-specific service, which makes sense given that the Mi Music app update is currently only installable on Chinese MIUI 12 / 12.5 versions. This makes updating the app only useful in China.
Nevertheless, Mi Music v4.0 is also expected to arrive to global users. Xiaomi is known to integrate its music app with various music streaming services depending on the region – in India it is with Hungama.
Perhaps the Indian variant of the Mi Music v4.0 app will also be integrated into Hungama, replacing QQ Music, although it is too early to say for sure.
In addition to the above, the update also brings the following new features:
1. A richer library of copyrighted music, popular songs and new songs available here
2. More enjoyable listening experience, the best professional reading service
3. A more refreshing visual design, focused on pure music experience
4. More intimate data management, migration of data and member assets with one click
5. Clearer product focus, continue to provide better content services for Mi fans
Mi AI starts rolling in beta
The Mi Music app isn’t the only one getting a major update, as a new update is also being rolled out to Xiaomi’s own AI smart assistant which goes by the name Mi AI.
The utility has been undergoing internal testing so far, but version 5.0 changes that. The update marks the end of internal testing and the start of the beta rollout of the app in China.
Yes, the app is again practically limited to China alone, as its services don’t seem to work outside of China yet. Nonetheless, MIUI enthusiasts are free to try Mi AI by downloading it from this link.
