Xiaomi Adds New Services Under the Utilities Card and Improves MIUI’s App Vault

In its latest MIUI 9.2 update, Xiaomi introduced the new App Vault. It is a one-stop activity center where the user can quickly access the most frequently used apps, tools or functions like getting a match score, getting the latest news, booking a cab, etc. The main aim behind introducing this feature is that the user does not have to open a dedicated app every time which he uses most often. The newly introduced App Vault includes many services and it is divided across various categories. In total, there are 14 categories in the App Vault that are all part of the “Utilities” card. This Utilities card is also called as the Quick card.


Xiaomi revealed that there are various services provided in this App Vault. It includes services like users can book movie tickets from various applications like BookMyShow or Paytm, users can access OLX and Quikr and sell their goods online, the users can also book a flight as well as railway tickets. Apart from this, there are services in different categories which allows you to order food, read the news, enjoy online shopping, last minute recharge, bill payment and many more.


Tools like news, notes, events, cricket score and many other widgets originally arrived with the earlier App Vault. They are still there in the MIUI 9.2 Global State update. To access the new services of the App Vault, users will have to swipe left on the home screen and scroll down to find the ‘Utilities’ card. There is also an option of “customize” where users can customize the various categories of App Vault according to their use and requirement. You can also change the shortcuts and cover image of the card from the settings.

It is a completely new revamped design by Xiaomi. The new utilities card is available in app vault ver 2.10.17 and higher.
