Create and sign into dual accounts for any app, including WhatsApp, Facebook and more. Some of us have more than one account on messaging apps and social media. It's really annoying and troublesome to logout and switching account especially with long password "A2@#$%^&*DDsdSJAJDaasdd" mixed with numbers and alphabet. MIUI 8 lets you duplicate apps. You can duplicate almost every apps on the market and playstore. The duplicated app will have a paste icon indicated on the app icon
Duplicate apps feature is not powerful enough? Okay, lets introduce second space ! You can also run 2 different MIUI logins in one phone, so that allows you to split your work mobile interface, from your personal one!

for better one-handed control.
Come across something interesting or important when reading on a webpage. Wanna share with your friends? Screenshot is your solution ! Normal screenshot covers only what is displayed on the screen of the phone, however sometimes to screenshot everything what we want is really troublesome. We might require two,three or even more times to capture the required information.
In MIUI 8, we fixed this !
Take scrolling screenshots of webpages and news articles. Crop, doodle or mosaic before sharing with a friend.
We have introduced scrolling screenshots in MIUI 8 enable you to take a 'long screenshot' image. One action to capture everything you need!
Here's how our panorama photo looks like after captured from the camera. Beautiful isn't it?
However when we head toward gallery app, the photos shown in the thumbnail is not attractive and appealing at all.
One of the changes in MIUI 8 is the gallery. Now it does support panorama photo in landscape preview. With facebook 360 degree photo feature implement recently, i'm sure panorama photo would become one of most popular and great hit in the future. Start taking photos and share with your friends
Wanna share a photo with your friends? Lazy to tap on "..." button and send? With MIUI 8 , what you have to do is just swipe up to share your favourite photos !
Photos and videos are taking much space in our storage. Nowadays smartphone are sports with high MP camera resulting the size of the photos taken increase dramatically. To overcome this problem we have Mi Cloud Photo Sync which sync full sized photos to Mi Cloud and thus free up to 90% of phone storage.
Spice up your videos with filters, text and background music.Trimming video and adding effects are now possible in MIUI 8. You can trim and add special effects & music easily by just using your smartphone. Swipe up and share could be use in sharing video too !
