Screenshots of what appears to be MIUI 14 have hit the web, revealing some of the upcoming changes. It goes without saying that this is based on Android 13. Here is what development version 22.7.19 looks like (Xiaomi uses date-based versions, so this is as fresh as it gets).
The Gallery app gains a text recognition feature, allowing you to quickly copy text from documents you have snapped. Also, there is an “On this day” feature, which will surface old photos shot on a given day years ago.
Bluetooth LE Audio will be supported, which is the next evolution of wireless audio. It brings a new high quality codec, plus support for Auracast broadcasting – a single device can act as a sort of FM radio station and multiple supported headphones can listen in. Additionally, Multi-Stream will be able to send audio to both TWS buds simultaneously (current TWS headsets have a main bud, which connects to the secondary bud).
MIUI 14 will also have improved Anti-fraud protection, which will point the finger at suspicious calls, messages and apps.
The new version will also help you declutter notifications and brings a reworked Assistant interface. The clock app UI has been spruced up as well.
MyDrivers reports that there will be no intermediate version of MIUI this year, like the MIUI 12.5 from last year. Xiaomi plans to go from v13 to MIUI 14 directly.
