In Short

MIUI 8 is the latest operating system from the Chinese company Xiaomi. MIUI currently has over 200 million users globally, and the latest iteration of the operating system brings with it a number of great new features, such as an all-new visual refresh that makes the UI look modern, new security enhancements, and more.

MIUI now offers a Dual Apps feature, which lets you run two instances of the same app simultaneously. The feature is useful if you're two SIM cards and have two WhatsApp or Facebook accounts and would like to use them from the same phone. Then there's Second Space, through which you can create a secondary profile on your phone — allowing you to use the same device for work and personal use.

MIUI 8 also brings a slew of new features to the Caller ID and messaging, with Xiaomi rolling out tools to fight spam. You'll also be able to take a scrolling screenshot, giving you the ability to save the contents of a web page in one go.
