Xiaomi has recently rolled out the first Android 9 Pie update to its Mi Box 3 via the beta program in the US. But it’s not clear that why the company has released the first beta in the US because right now, Xiaomi Mi Box 3 gets the second Android 9 Pie update (OTA 0 Beta 1 Hotfix). So, if you’re using the Mi Box 3 (Android TV Box) then you can easily enroll in the beta program to receive the latest update via OTA.
As we all know that the beta program always is focused on the future stable release so each and every user should get a stable and optimized user experience along with the improvements or changes also. It’s also worth mentioning that the first beta update (OTA 0 Beta 0) was quite stable and bug-free. Therefore, Xiaomi is rolling out the 2nd Android Pie (OTA 0 Beta 1 Hotfix) update to fix the screen-casting issue only.
Now, if you’re already encountering screen casting issues with the Chromecast or smartphone apps such as YouTube then you should grab this update to fix the particular problem. A couple of days ago, a Reddit user /u/Askmetech has shared the first beta update screenshot that includes Android 9 Pie OS and Mi Remote App usage for the Xiaomi Mi Box 3.
While the same Android 9 Pie update for Xiaomi Mi Box 4K and Mi Box S wasn’t good enough and it took Xiaomi to fix all of the bugs for several months until the release of a stable update. The full OTA update weighs around 650MB which is quite bigger in size.
So, if you’re a Mi Box S/4K user and want to update to the Android 9 Pie stable version then check out the changelog below:
- Amazon Prime Videos preinstalled
- Reading and writing via USB
- New settings menu interface
- Audio via USB
- Special access for apps, such as overlap
- Amazon Prime video as system app
- New interface when pressing the volume button
- Screenshot while holding on / off button pressed
- Options to manually select audio formats, such as Dolby Digital Plus and AAC
- Fixed frontal light automatically on/off after suspend.
- Fixed system language change automatically
