Xiaomi has today started releasing the MIUI 10 stable version update based on Android 9 Pie operating system for its Mi 8 series smartphones. Currently, the update is being rolled out to Mi 8 and Mi 8 Explorer Edition while the users of Mi 8 UD will have to wait a bit longer.

As per the reports, with this update, the company is also introducing new features for improved camera experience, including Night Mode and 960fps slow-motion video recording. The short videos creating using 960fps slow-mo can be shared directly with friends and family via WeChat.

The Night Mode feature allows users to shoot clear images with as little noise as possible at night or in low-light areas. When you capture a photo in a low-light situation, it first detects the light and jitters through AI Smart Metering and automatically determines the exposure area. In each frame, it smartly selects 100 key feature points and fixes the color at the same time.

The MIUI 10 comes with several new features such as improved recent apps menu which is designed to better utilize the full-screen design on newer Xiaomi devices. Instead of arranging recent apps like a stack of cards, the app cards appear side by side on the screen, enabling you to see as much as six recent apps on the screen at one time.

Xiaomi says that the new MIUI makes use of artificial intelligence technology for “up to zero” loading times by studying your app usage behavior and anticipating actions. It also brings a new driving mode which relies on voice commands to avoid distractions.
