Xiaomi is on its way to becoming the favorite brand of the Spanish, at least if we look at the sales figures for their mobiles. One of the reasons is because MIUI allows a great customization of the terminal, and gives us many options to improve the day to day.
In the middle of this year 2020 the company announced that it was working on a new way to control the volume in MIUI 12. Now this function is reaching international mobile users since it is the MIUI 12 Global ROM that is receiving the update .
Controlling the volume individually in MIUI 12
The novelty is related to the way in which we vary the volume of the terminal depending on what we are doing.
By default, Android is able to differentiate the volume that we assign to some functions, such as the alarm, calls or multimedia elements. However, it is not able to distinguish between applications.
This is what the latest MIUI 12 update offers, a granular control that allows you to put a different volume to each application. This is perfect when we are using Picture in Picture with a Netflix video, for example, but at the same time we are browsing Twitter or Instagram stories, which we do not want to be heard.
How to activate this function
It is important to note that the new form of sound control is not active by default. To use this parameter we have to go to:
- Sound and vibration.
- Sound Assistant.
- Adjust multimedia sound in multiple applications.
As we always say, updates are already being sent to all users, but it will be a few weeks before they are all available. This is because they are launched in waves, to avoid that if there are problems affecting a large number of users.
The MIUI 12 entry is updated with better control of the sound of the apps appears first in The Free Android.
