Check How to extend notifications on MIUI Redmi devices

Chinese tech company Xiaomi has come a long way since its inception. Their cheap smartphones with good hardware like the Redmi / Redmi Note series are very popular in countries like India and China. The Xiaomi MIUI smartphone operating system (built on Android) has also turned into a decent ROM. However, one of the disadvantages of MIUI is that you cannot simply expand notifications from the notification bar.

This is relatively much easier on stock Android, where all you have to do is swipe down on a notification to expand it. However, due to the flexibility of Android, we can easily get this much-needed feature on Xiaomi phones (without having to root our phones!). All we have to do is install a simple app called Material Notification Shade from the Play Store.

If you have used a standard Android device, or even a Samsung or OnePlus phone, you will be familiar with my words. For the ignorant, MIUI does not support a single swipe on notifications to expand them. You have to slide two fingers to expand the notifications. This is inconvenient and the problem does not end there. While the two-finger swipe gesture works for third-party apps like Microsoft SMS Organizer, Truecaller, WhatsApp, etc., it somehow doesn’t work for all apps, including the standard SMS app.

Extend notifications with one finger on Xiaomi MIUI

First, a few words about the standard way to extend notifications in MIUI. If you want to expand a WhatsApp notification to read the messages, you need to slide two fingers down on the notification to expand it. This is very inconvenient and you just open the application.

Starting with Android Marshmallow, handling notifications is much more advanced. You can not only expand the notifications, but also edit individual notifications in a package. For example, if you receive 5 emails, you can use the notification bar to reply to one of these five emails yourself. These functions are not available by default in MIUI.

Material Notification Shade adds all the functionality of the Android notification bar on your Xiaomi device. Replace your standard MIUI notification tone with the standard Android notification tone. With this application, you can expand the notifications by simply sliding them with one finger.

For this app to work, all you need to do is install it from the Play Store. Then open the app and make sure it’s turned on. It will ask for your permission to access the notifications. As soon as you allow access, the app should be up and running and you don’t have to worry about it anymore.

Due to the aggressive removal of MIUI apps, you may need to lock this app in memory. Otherwise it will keep killing the app, taking you back to the previous notification shade. Here’s how to lock the app in memory:

  • Open the recent applications screen by pressing the right navigation key and search for the Material Notification Shade application.
  • Swipe the app down and you will see the option to lock the app in memory.

As soon as you press the lock button, the app will remain permanently in memory until you exit it yourself. You may need to reopen it every time you restart your phone as you may have auto-start issues. All you have to do is open the app and make sure it’s turned on.
