MIUI is really known among the user community because it not only provides a huge amount of customizable aspects, but also because over time it includes a greater number of functionalities which the consumer can take advantage of.
This is the case of one of the latest additions to the Asian giant’s program, which basically consists of boosting the speed of your phone’s Internet connection so that it works much faster.
Improve the connectivity of your Xiaomi
It is necessary to point out that this feature is available both on mobile Xiaomi, Redmi or POCO. So any user with one of these devices can take advantage of this feature to increase the capabilities of the terminal.
It should be noted that this novelty is very useful on several occasions, either because your connection is slower than expected or you want navigate faster usual. Xiaomi is to be thanked for integrating a property of this type into the system, since we do not need to go to any third-party service or resort to somewhat complex procedures for this. You only have to enable a certain option within the settings and then we will explain the steps you must follow:
- Open the smartphone settings.
- Tap on the section dedicated to Wi-Fi. Be careful, this appears among the first sections of the system.
- Once inside, select Wi-Fi Assistant.
- Among the multiple options that this part of the device shows, press Traffic mode.
- Then choose Extreme Mode or Fast Connection (depending on your MIUI version) to enjoy faster speed.
How this option works
The purpose of this Xiaomi configuration is to allocate the maximum connection speed possible to the applications you are using in the foreground; while, on the other hand, those in the background remain inactive in a certain way. This means that the system will give priority to the current activity to focus most of its resources on it.
However, you must be careful when using this function. Mainly, because as we have just mentioned in the previous paragraph, the Internet background task is “deactivated”. This means that it is possible that messages, as well as notifications from messaging applications take longer than normal in delivering the notice.
A scenario that can become a real headache if you are waiting for an important message. That is why we recommend using this tool on your Xiaomi only and exclusively in activities that require optimal connectivity such as a multiplayer video game. Anyway, the decision is completely yours, so you choose when to use it.
