There are 3 Main features that set the MIUI 9 apart from MIUI 8:
- Image Search
- Smart Assistant
- Smart App launcher
The Mi gallery uses an algorithm to identify what objects are there in the photo. After identifying they assign the photo to the associated keywords, hence when you type the wanted keyword, the associated images will come up. You can hence filter out your photos by people, location, events etc.
Smart App Launcher
When I heard about this Feature, I quickly thought about Google On Tap, which also provides relevant content based on the contents on the screen.
MIUI launched their first ROM back in 2010. Seven Years later, they have racked up 2.8 Billion active users, using it in 55 languages, in 142 countries. A big Salute to Xiaomi for making a really amazing User Interface. In my opinion, the main reason I love Xiaomi is that of MIUI.
