The MIUI, developed by Xiaomi, is a widely popular Android interface known for its customization options and functionalities. However, like all interfaces, it also has its shortcomings compared to the competition. One such example is the lack of customization options for the lock screen. With the release of Android 13, Google has made it a native feature of the operating system. This means that we can soon expect to see this feature on Xiaomi, Redmi, and POCO smartphones as well.
Recently, Google released the QRP2 (Quarterly Platform Release) of Android 13, and those who have tested it have discovered the addition of the ability to change the two shortcuts present at the bottom of the lock screen. This feature is already present on interfaces like Samsung’s One UI, while other brands are adding it with the release of Android 13. This allows users to access various functions such as calls, cameras, flashlights, Google Wallet, and home automation devices directly from the locked screen, depending on how developers choose to implement it.
Currently, MIUI 14 does not offer the customization of shortcuts. However, with the inclusion of this feature in Android 13 by Google, it is likely that we will see it in future versions of the MIUI, such as MIUI 15.
