Fellow MIUIers,

MIUI 7 Global Launch just ended a while ago, do you still remember the highlights of the launch? Let me remind you of one: the Caller Profile Video. What's new about this feature? Sometimes we might know a few friends of same names (I got a peer of the exact same name as mine, small world isn't it?) and we tend to mistake one person for the other while picking up calls from them; or when you got a partial name of someone which confuses you who the person is exactly. Why not we get an animated one, personalized by the contact himself, so you know exactly who's calling?

Introducing Caller Profile Video (Showtime)
Let's see a sample of this feature first, so you get a better understanding of what I said above and what you have to do later. Our example here is from our lovely Mi employee who sacrificed a lot just to show you how this works.

Please don't try to call this person, it'll incur international call charges.

After viewing the above sample, if you wish to set a video for your own contact (you can take a video of anything you want, unless of course if you want to do the same as the subject above), please read on and learn how you can personalize your own profile video.



First of all, you need to setup your phone make it show the video IDs. There'll be two pathways to choose from while doing this:
  • Phone > Long Press on Menu button > Scroll down and activate "Show caller's profile video" under Answer category
  • Settings > System Apps > Call Settings > Scroll down and activate "Show caller's profile video" under Answer category

Next up, complete your own profile. Head into Contacts > Tap on "My Profile" > Fill it up with relevent information then choose "OK".

Now that you've completed your profile, time to setup your own profile video! First, allow others to view your profile video and exchange theirs with you.

Screenshot_2015-08-18-19-46-27.png Screenshot_2015-08-18-19-46-45.png

Before setting up the video, give yourself a proper profile photo first, incase you don't want to make a video. Tap on the new "Add Profile Photo" selection then choose from either taking a fresh new photo or to browse through your gallery for one.

Once you complete setting up the photo, if you want to shoot a profile video, just tap on the "Add Video" button and shoot away! (Users can also choose to browse from their Gallery for a video)

Screenshot_2015-08-18-19-49-05.png Screenshot_2015-08-18-19-49-51.png

Finished recording your video? Time to get a preview! After recording, tap the screen once on the next interface to bring up a preview of the effect. You can tap on "Retry" if you don't like this one, then keep shooting more until you find the perfect one.

Screenshot_2015-08-18-19-51-22.png Screenshot_2015-08-18-19-51-29.png

After some time, you might want to change it to give a refreshing look. How to do it? Just head into your profile > Tap on "Preview Video" > Tap on the three dot menu button then choose "Retry". If you want to delete it, you can do it here too!
