3 Ways to Use Dynamic Video Wallpaper on MIUI 11 Phones 1

MIUI 11 is a major update of Xiaomi’s skinned mobile operating system. It brings many new features along with some enhancements. Previously, we’ve seen Transparent Wallpaper. There is another cool feature offering a stunning style to enhance your experience in using MIUI 11.

Enter the Dynamic Video Wallpaper! As you might have already guessed from its name, the feature allows you to use any video of your choice as the background wallpaper on your Xiaomi Mi, Redmi, and Redmi Note phones.

Other smartphone brands usually call this feature as Live Wallpaper. However, there is a significant discrepancy. Live Wallpaper usually depends on apps having a set of Live Wallpaper animation to use. This animation is not customizable usually.

On the other hand, what comes with MIUI 11 allows users to use their own videos as the live wallpaper.

This is a must-use feature of MIUI 11 especially if your phone is one of the latest Redmi Note and Mi series such as Redmi Note 8, 8 Pro, Mi 9, Mi 9T, or Mi Note 10.
