What is MIUI 11 Focus Mode?
The leading company in gadget market MI (Xiaomi) is trying to make its MIUI 11 as similar to Android 10 in terms of feature, and said to bring Focus Mode for users. Still, they haven’t released the features officially. Some devices of Mi which runs on stock android already have this feature and Mi is trying to put this feature in its own User face MIUI also. If you want to enable MIUI 11 Focus Mode on any device: Here’s how to do it.
Focus mode is one of the best features of Android 10, which Google introduced a few months. In this feature, while using your device, you can pause a particular app without accessing Disable App, and it will stop the notifications as well. But this feature of MIUI 11 is slightly different from the Google one. In MIUI, there are pre-defined time limits of 20 minutes, 30 minutes, 45 minutes, 60 minutes, and 90 minutes. After choosing one of them, you cannot use your device until the time duration is completed.
You will be able to use some of the features like Camera, Emergency Call, and Screenshot features in between the time duration after your phone get locked. Before in MIUI, we have seen a feature called “Digital Wellbeing,” now it will be replaced by “Screen Time” and Focus Mode is the part of MIUI 11 Screen Time. This feature provides more privacy to you and your device as no one can access a particular app you have paused for a specific duration of time. And it is a great option to use when you have to give your device to small kids.
