We are going to tell you about the MIUI floating ball, a concept similar to Apple’s Assistive Touch, a floating ball for interacting with the phone. In the case of Xiaomi, we can also activate this function from the settings, although it is a bit hidden.
We will teach you how MIUI floating ball is activated
Xiaomi’s virtual ball is very useful
The virtual ball has been with us for a few years at Xiaomi, although over time it has evolved into what it is now. In our case, we tested it in the latest version of MIUI, 12.5, although it was available in previous versions.
This virtual ball has two main functions. The first is solve the problems in case we have a broken part in our Xiaomi. If, for example, a button has been broken, we have a part of the screen broken and others, this ball will help us to use the functions of the phone without needing to use these hardware elements.
If we want activate the floating ballJust follow these steps that we explain below:
- Open your Xiaomi settings
- Click on additional settings
- Look for the option “floating ball”
- activate it
Once activated, in this same menu, you can configure its behavior. That is, you can configure all the shortcuts, gestures to use it, if we want it to be displayed on the lock screen and so on, make it visible (or not) all time, etc.
