One of the reasons why Poco Launcher shined when compared to the standard MIUI launcher is it comes with app drawer and offers several customization features which are absent on the standard MIUI launcher. Furthermore, Poco did an excellent job by releasing the launcher app on Google Play Store so that even Xiaomi phone users can download it and use. That being said, it’s one of the best Android launcher apps available right now.
Xiaomi has started rolling out a new update to is Poco Launcher that brings a host of interesting features including new dark theme mode. The update also brings bug fixes along with sharper app icons and more. The new dark theme can be found buried deep inside Launcher Settings, and it’s different from the system-wide Dark Mode that is still being tested by Xiaomi and is slated for roll out in the future. The new update to the Poco Launcher also brings along bug fixes, sharper app icons, the ability to add custom apps to App vault shortcuts, and a more responsive UI as well.
The new dark theme was first spotted by Android Police and it is available to Poco Launcher with version number 126.96.36.199. In order to enable the dark theme, users need to long-press on the home screen and then click on Settings icons. Users then need to click on More and then on Backgrounds. There one will find an option to choose between light and dark theme.
Apart from the new Dark Theme, Poco Launcher version 188.8.131.52 also fixes icon pack bugs and UI bugs. It added the ability to add custom apps to App Vault shortcuts, and double tapping the screen to lock device works on all compatible models now. The update brings crisper, prettier, and sharper app icons as well. As the Poco Launcher is available to download for all Android users, the dark theme feature can be used by anyone who has Poco Launcher installed, and not just Poco F1. The update can be manually downloaded via APK Mirror and is also available on the Google Play store, where the changelog is listed.
The Poco F1 recently also received Widevine L1 support for streaming HD content on Amazon Prime and Hotstar. The latest MIUI 10 Global beta ROM also introduced system-wide dark mode (to enable, go to Settings > Display > Dark Mode) as well, and Xiaomi promised Netflix HD Streaming support soon.
