Traditionally, in the interface of mobile devices Xiaomi applications are not placed in the application menu, but directly on the desktop, which creates inconvenience for fans of classic Android. However, it seems that in the near future a similar menu of applications will appear in MIUI. This feature is currently being actively tested.
To call the menu will be the corresponding icon on the desktop. The menu itself will be divided into all applications and recently used. To minimize the menu, you will need to click on the arrow at the top of the screen.
To activate the application menu, you will need to manually enable the corresponding item in the "Advanced" section in the "Settings".
In addition to the application menu in MIUI, you will be able to influence it directly by long pressing the application icon.
