Chinese smartphone maker, Xiaomi has silently added a new Game Speed Booster feature to the MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM. The latest version of MIUI 9 Global Beta comes with the Game Speed Boost feature hidden under the Security app, which comes preinstalled on Xiaomi smartphones. The feature is available for all the MIUI 9 Global Beta supported devices, including the ones from 2012.
Xiaomi recently announced their latest custom ROM; the MIUI 9 will be rolled out to 40 of their devices. The MIUI 9 is based on Android 7.0 Nougat, but it is heavily customised and offers some interesting new features like Smart Assistant, Smart App launcher among others.
One of the highlight features of the MIUI 9 is the Game Speed Booster which is a smart system optimisation to enhance the in-game experience of the users. The feature is now available on any phone running the stable version of Global MIUI 9 ROM.
How to Enable Game Booster in MIUI 9?
Game Speed Booster is available in the Security suite along with other options. Though Xiaomi Security app is used for clearing cache and running security checks, scrolling down, you can see Tools, one of which is “Gaming speed boost”.
In order to use it, tap the feature to enable it. Starting the Game Booster will automatically clear the RAM and cache memory, thus improving game performance. It also increases the phone’s CPU usage with dynamic allocation of available resources.
You’ll have to add your games to enjoy a greater gaming experience. Through “+” icon you will be able to add your pre-installed games.
The Gaming speed boost tool has its own settings panel with a handful of options to optimise the gaming performance. For example, we can apply a certain level of brightness automatically, activate the DND mode, and reduce syncs in the background.
To enjoy fluid gaming experience, we also have the option to turn off all notifications except incoming calls. You can as well answer calls directly on the speakerphone and turn off the onscreen keys. Also, users get the option to prevent switching networks in the middle of games if you are using both SIM cards.
When everything is optimised, games will certainly run faster. Xiaomi, however, has warned that some of its older devices and their chipsets might heat excessively, so proceed with caution.
