The company explained that, instead of waiting months to deliver new versions of MIUI, updates come every week for users. This new versioning system required a lot planning and was only possible thanks to community input.
On Fridays, the Xiaomi public Beta versions of their software. This OS can be downloaded and used by users during the weekend, which then can provide feedback with suggestions and improvements. Within three days - Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday - the company's development team works to deliver what was requested by the community. On Thursday, internal tests are performed, and again Friday marks the day of the release of another update.

MIUI growth in five years allowed the OS came to 100 million users.

"Software is our platform"

During the presentation, the Brazilian Hugo Barra - current CTO (Chief Executive of Technology) of Xiaomi - made it clear that software is the real platform of the company. More than the hardware and the available equipment, it is on the system that the company really invests its laurels.

Hugo Barra is proud to say that in five years, Xiaomi the system was able to reach over 100 million users worldwide.
