An Alpha version of the MIUI Launcher has been released and you can now download and try it out on your Xiaomi device to get familiar with the new features. The most notable change is the app drawer and the option to change the Home screen layout along with icon size.
The new release gives you the option to choose between the standard app drawer and the familiar to MIUI users' single tier layout. Of course, the app drawer isn't enabled by default so you will have to flick a switch in the settings menu.
It looks as if the change has been inspired by the Poco launcher, which has the app drawer enabled by default and since users adopted the change so fast, Xiaomi decided to give the option to its Chinese and global users of MIUI. Additionally, you can change the icon size and customize the Home screen layout.
You can download the new build from the source link below. It's an alpha version though, so it's no good for your daily driver phone.
FINALLY!! YES!! after all these years finally the App drawer as an option is in!
Thats good news, there was cool feature back in mi3 days, when you enter app name in search, it won`t just launch it but show you with shadow effects where it is, my issue now is i have 6 screens fully loaded with apps and I just cant find an old app...
