Personalization is a key aspect when choosing a device. In addition to the design of the mobile itself, its specifications, its performance and, of course, its price, be able to customize the operating system will be our ‘house brand’, and everyone will know that our mobile is ours thanks to that.
Luckily, both MIUI 13 and the recent MIUI 14 (which is still coming to Xiaomi, Redmi and POCO devices) allow a huge amount of customization, and one of the most important aspects are the widgets. Being able to customize them brings a degree of authenticity to your mobileand we are going to teach you how to do it.
Customize your widgets in MIUI
The home screen of your Xiaomi mobile houses much more than app icons, folders with games or the Google search bar. Widgets allow us to have a huge amount of information at a glance and directly on the home screen.
If we talk about MIUI, the customization layer on Android that all Xiaomi phones have, these widgets you can change your design to our liking, and it all depends on a single application: themes. This app, included in all company devicesoffers endless possibilities when it comes to personalizing content.
The Xiaomi Themes application has an infinite number of different styles that will completely change the look from your device, from the wallpaper to the icons. There are even some themes that change the look of your widgets: their color, shape and content.
You can go researching the application to test what themes you like. you can find them by categoriessee the most downloaded or search for yourself through the search engine. Once you apply a theme, you will see all the icons and wallpaper changeand even the widgets will have different colors.
Also, in MIUI 14, you have an added advantage. Xiaomi has added a ‘store’ from which you will be able to download a lot of widgets. When you long press on the home screen and select ‘Widgets’, you will see two sections: recommended and categories. There you can select different widgets, of different colors and with information from all kinds of apps.
