Autostart Apps

After every reboot to your phone, you will have to manually restart all the apps after tapping on them. Redmi allows users to start apps automatically after every reboot.

It will be better to keep unused apps off for faster and smoother running of the device.

Goto Settings > Permissions > Autostart and disable apps which you don’t want to start at reboot.

Camera shortcut

To enable this, Goto Settings > Lock screen & password > toggle Launch camera option.

Fingerprint scanner camera shutter button

Some people find it difficult to click on the shutter button on the display to take a selfie picture.

You can enable this feature in the settings menu of the Camera app.

Wi-Fi passthrough

Redmi solves this issue by allowing other devices to connect to a Redmi device in the router network and access internet. This feature enables us to share our Wi-Fi network with others even without sharing our Wi-Fi password.

To connect phones and share Wi-Fi, Goto Settings > Wi-Fi > tap on the Wi-Fi network your phone is connected. Scan the QR code which pops up using the camera app of the device to establish the connection.
