Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has announced that it is pulling the latest Global Beta of its in-house Android-based heavily skinned MIUI 10. The company updated the original announcement post for the 8.8.9 version to announce the suspension of the Global Beta version. The company stated that the version had some “major bugs” in its Dual Apps functionality which would lead to apps reloading, force quitting, and black screen while operating dual apps. The company went on to add that its developers are working to fix the issue in the meantime.

The updated forum post did not provide any additional details and it did not clarify if or when the company was planning to launch the new version for the Global Beta. According to the announcement post, the Global Beta ROM came with a number of small updates that were largely bug fixes in the way built-in apps behave. The fixes ranged from patching up the music player on the lock screen, ensuring that apps don’t go missing after updating the operating system to ensuring that the System UI does not stop when the user disconnects from Bluetooth.

Other fixes include ensuring that the device security continues to work regardless, fixing blank toggles in the notification shade, to double notifications for Telegram, and WhatsApp and problems in notification font and sound.

As previously reported, an alpha build of Android 9 Pie-based MIUI leaked out on the internet. This is part of the beta testing that Xiaomi has kicked off as part of its follow up to the official launch of the Android 9 Pie by Google on August 6, 2018.
