As an Internet company, Xiaomi has always emphasized on making the best user experience on our apps. Xiaomi’s first product was MIUI, our proprietary operating system built on the Android kernel. From the start, MIUI has fully embraced the Android ecosystem, including all mobile apps.
Working with developers has always been a very important part of our DNA, and after entering the hardware business, Xiaomi has continued to ensure that our users get the best user experience possible, backed by seamless integration between hardware and software.
Continuing to deliver on this vision, Xiaomi today announced its participation in the Android P Developer Preview program. This provides developers and early adopters a chance to experience the latest Android release on Mi MIX 2S, allowing them to try out the latest features, and test apps they have developed, ensuring that they work on the upcoming Android P.

For example, developers will be able to simulate a notch on the top of the screen to accommodate for smartphones that have this design. Notifications have also been enhanced in Android P in supported messaging apps, you can see images in the notifications.
