Xiaomi developers are preparing a new update for the MIUI 12 branded launcher.
Craftsmen from the Xiaomiui Telegram channel got hold of the Alpha version of the MIUI Launcher v184.108.40.2065-10261728 application, in which a horizontal list of the last launched applications appeared. As shown in the screenshots below, this display can be enabled in the settings.
The appearance of the new window resembles a similar section in OnePlus smartphones with OxygenOS on board. You can close the application with a swipe up, and block it with a long press. By the way, the old vertical version with a 2 × 2 grid is not going anywhere.
When the change appears to all users, there is no information. Most likely, it will first be added to the beta version of the program, and then to the stable release.
