Xiaomi is one of the largest smartphone manufacturers in the world and the technology giant wants to expand its reach to software. Although Google’s Android operating system could be ruling the smartphone industry at this time, Xiaomi is looking to increasingly introduce its software in the hope of replacing Android at some point. Download link to the latest Mi browser can be found at the end of the post.
Waiting to replace Android
We should mention that Xiaomi is not the only technology company that is doing this since Samsung has been doing everything possible to get its fans to switch to the Tizen operating system for some time. Although, the search for Samsung to overcome Google in the operating system industry has not been successful.
However, going back to Xiaomi, the reason why this Chinese technological giant is in the headlines today is that it released a new update to its Mi browser.
Mi browser 9.6.1 update
While launching a new operating system to replace Android could be an impossible task, Xioami is taking things more slowly creating applications as browsers. Speaking of Mi Browser, we have to admit that it is a fantastic application that offers users a premium web browsing experience.
Not only that, but Xiaomi is always looking for new software settings that can improve the performance of Mi browser and this is exactly what this latest update does. The new update has the version number “9.6.1” and is available as an APK.
The reason why technology companies release APK versions of their updates before the official implementation of OTA is that they want beta testers to have them in their hands and report if there is a problem. However, anxious Android users can manually download and install APK updates on their smartphones by just enabling the “Unknown sources” feature that can be found in the “Settings” panel.
