To provide stable updates on their future phones, the tech giant has made a decision to discontinue its global beta updates. But beginning July 1, 2019, the global MIUI beta program will be no more. The new change will come into force from July 1, the Beijing-based organization declared through its MIUI Community discussions.
Lastly, Xiaomi also reassures that it'll continue to release security updates in a timely manner despite this change.
Avid Xiaomi fans know that MIUI has a separate China ROM for devices exclusive to the Chinese market and a global ROM for phones sold here in Kenya and other markets outside China. The update is also available for Mi Note 3, Mi MIX 3, Mi 9 beta testers.
If you have been testing the MIUI Beta updates on your Xiaomi devices, then you should not be anxious after this decision as the company has also said that they will release the stable versions of the MIUI updates more frequently than before. The official update could possibly be released in the same quarter as the beta testing or during the first-quarter of 2020. While the goal of the beta is to give users the chance to try out new software and provide feedback, Xiaomi says that most people just use the software on their main phones and don't bother with feedback at all. The beta release is not meant for the public and will not helpful to them. Yet again, the Chinese phone brand went ahead to take a dig at OnePlus through its new teaser via Twitter by saying - "Some celebrations are short-lived".
