Xiaomi POCO F1 gets Game Turbo as a standalone app in latest MIUI beta

Disrupting the segment of the market dominated by brands like OnePlus, Xiaomi has made a new statement with the launch of POCO F1 which offers incredible value for money and a feature-rich spec sheet. In addition to this, the team dedicated to the POCO (Pocophone) brand has constantly rolled out new MIUI updates to implement the latest features on the Xiaomi POCO F1. A few weeks ago the smartphone received a major update from MIUI which added features like 4K video recording at 60fps, Widevine L1 certification to play HD videos on apps like Netflix and Prime Video , and a Game Turbo mode to improve performance and interaction with notifications during the game. Now the latest MIUI 10 beta update further improves the Game Turbo mode.

While Game Turbo was previously accessible from MIUI’s security app, the feature has now evolved into a standalone system app, with added functionality and a nicer layout. To coincide with POCO’s race-inspired yellow and black brand identity, the accent color has changed from blue to yellow now. In the app, titles automatically added to Game Turbo are listed as cards in a carousel, and there’s an option to change that view to thumbnails.

During their gaming sessions on the POCO F1, users can pull the drop-down tray and clear the memory, take a screenshot, record the screen, or switch between mobile data, Wi-Fi, and DND. Additionally, users will also be able to open apps such as WhatsApp and File Manager as floating windows to ensure that urgent notifications are not missed.

The Game Turbo function settings on POCO F1 have also been revamped. While there aren’t many changes to the options available, the new interface now looks cleaner and relatively more descriptive. The source did not mention the exact version of MIUI, so it is possible that it is a closed beta update. But we will definitely let you know when a download link for the update is available.

Meanwhile, Xiaomi has also released the feature for a performance boost while gaming on devices like the Redmi Note 5 Pro with the recent MIUI 10 Global beta. However, the interface looks identical to what it looks like on the POCO F1 running the MIUI 10 stable firmware for POCO.
