Xiaomi initially tested this feature in September to ensure that it works. Digging further, the company has teamed up with Care-life, an organization focused on natural disaster warnings to develop this system. The company has activated this feature in the Sichuan province in China. This area is quite prone to earthquakes and the company hopes that this feature will help Xiaomi users. The company claims that this feature works more efficiently than other app-based solutions in other countries. The company did not reveal any information about rolling this feature outside China.
