Android 9 Pie Update Xiaomi 3: Evidently, Xiaomi is getting into the update game with its Android 9 Pie update for many Android TVs and Mi Boxes. The manufacturer just launched a stable Android 9 Pie update for the Mi TV 4 series and the Mi Box S. The Mi Box 3, however, became quite popular at launch and is still available in different households across the globe. We have good news for all the Mi Box 3 users out there. The Android 9 Pie firmware update is under development and will soon be launched.

A post from one of the Admins at the Mi Box Facebook Group related Android 9 Pie update for Mi Box S and the same coming to the Mi Box 3. Now, the stabilizer claims that they are in contact with the software developers at Xiaomi. The devs are searching into the existing issue with the Android 9 update for the Mi Box S. The stabilizer also claims that the older generation Mi Box 3 will also get the Android 9 Pie OTA update soon. Let’s come and check out the notice yourself.


Reaction on Admins’ Notice:

This means good news not only for the Mi Box S users but also for the Mi Box 3 users as the Xiaomi developers. As they look into fixing the existing Android 9 firmware for their Android boxes. While there is no estimate as to when the Pie update for the Mi Box 3 will reach. We all expect the beta to start anytime soon if that ever happens. We may also receive the stable Pie update directly once the errors from Mi Box S are addresses.

Android Oreo update for the Mi Box 3

As we know that, the Android Oreo update for the Mi Box 3 came last year and jumped from Marshmallow. This latest update will feature all the Android 9 Pie goodies and features. The features include reading and writing over USB, new settings menu user interface (same as other Pie devices), latest UI for volume keys, USB audio, a screenshot shortcut, and much more. You can also enjoy all the latest streaming and entertainment services like Hulu, Showtime, Spotify, HBO Now, YouTube, and almost any app you can find on the Play Store. In addition, Mi Box 3 will also support Netflix, Amazon Prime, and the newly added Disney+ app.

Key Features:

Here are some of the new features that came to the Mi Box S with Android 9 Pie update:

  • Reading and writing via USB
  • The new settings menu interface
  • UI for volume keys
  • Audio via USB
  • Special access for apps i.e overlap
  • Amazon Prime video as a system app
