Xiaomi's custom launcher application debuted last year with the release of the POCOPHONE F1, which I actually do own. POCO Launcher has gotten a new beta update available on the Play Store for us to test. Version 18.104.22.168 comes with the following four notable changes below, so take a look at them and then continue with our insight section.
- App suggestions got more accurate.
- Animations got a major upgrade.
- You can change the password for hidden app icons now.
- We fixed some bugs as well.
Upon installing this new update I have noticed that animations do feel noticeably faster and scrolling is a tad smoother when compared to the previous version 22.214.171.124 stable build. The release notes also mention improvements to app suggestions, though I cannot give you any intel on that topic right now.
App lock password reset
Aside from speed enhancements, you can now reset your app lock pattern if you wish to do so. But first, you have to enter the app drawer, double swipe from left-to-right and fill in your credentials like fingerprint or pattern if required. Then, at the top left you will notice a lock icon with a pen crossing it and tapping on it will take you straight away to the password reset page.
Do note that the Play Store beta is currently full. If you want to try out this beta release, then your best bet is APK Mirror where you can grab the latest APK file and manually install it on your Android device.
