Xiaomi took care of the users and decided to gradually abandon the pre-installed branded apps in the MIUI shell. Priority is given to favorable Google solutions. That is, MIUI Updater components will be replaced with the Google Updater.
what does it mean
The Android system has a special component responsible for updating the OS of the device. Third-party vendors who implement their own shell, as a rule, change it on their own. The same thing happened with Xiaomi: devices with the MIUI shell control updates via the MIUI Updater. It was later realized that if the global versions of smartphones were inferior to them in this regard, the ownership of Chinese phones would work better and faster. But once the decisions are made, everything has to change for the better.
They have taken the first steps in this direction: they have already replaced the MIUI dialer and messaging with Google Phone and Google Messages. In the global version of the Redmi Note 8 Pro and Xiaomi Mi10, the MIUI Updater was replaced with the standard software update solution from Google.
It installs by default on Android. The download problem will be solved by changing the server where the update files are stored. At the same time, Xiaomi’s policy regarding the release of updates to the operating system is said to remain the same.
