User superstructure MIUI 12 offers a large number of interesting and useful functions in its equipment. The list of these various tweaks is growing very fast, and the most recent ones include the convenient control of Google Home devices.
The ability to control Google Home devices quickly and promptly directly from the system is conditional on updating to the latest generation of operating system Android 11. You can find the first and last about the Xiaomi and Androide 11 smartphones at this link.
MIUI 12 with Google Home
A post appeared on the popular Reddit forum, in which we clearly see the implementation of the control of Google Home devices directly in the MIUI 12 superstructure on the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite smartphone. The control takes place via the control center modeled on the American iOS.
On GIFe above, you can see what the native implementation of device control from the Google Home application to the smartphone system looks like. In our opinion, this is an elegant and logical design, which will greatly facilitate the control of these devices.
In addition to a simple overview of the status of the device, you do not have to open the Google Home application every time you manipulate the device. It is possible that in the future we will receive support for Amazon Alexa alongside Google Home and Mi Home.
Setup is easy
If you'd like to enable this display of devices from Google Home in the control center on your smartphone, follow these simple steps:
- Settings> Screen> Control Center and then choose between Mi Home and Google Home in the Smart Home section.
We are already very much looking forward to the availability of Android 11 for the largest possible list of smartphones. In the editorial office, we use several dozen devices for a smart home, and this new feature will make their operation much easier and more pleasant for us.
