How to Enable Beam for Notifications In Xiaomi

Enable Beam for Notifications on HyperOS

Xiaomi has recently rolled out a new HyperOS update on many devices, which includes some hidden features. Not everyone can find these easily, and that’s where I come in. I’ve been digging into these new features and I’m excited to share them with you.

One of the new hidden features I recently found in the Additional Settings is “Beam for Notifications.” So, let’s dive into what this feature is, how to use it, and why it might be useful for you.

What is Beam For Notifications on Xiaomi

The Beam for Notifications is a feature of Xiaomi smartphones that’s included in the HyperOS updates. The purpose of this feature is to display a color beam on your screen when you receive a call or a new notification. You can also set your camera flash to alert you of notifications.

With the Color Beam notification, you can select any color from six options (Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Red, Purple), and when you receive a notification, it will flash on your phone display.

This feature is particularly handy when you switch your phone to silent mode and place it at a distance. It blinks with a bright flash, alerting you about calls and notifications, without any sound.

How to Enable Beam For Notifications

To enable this new hidden feature on your Xiaomi device, you need to have the HyperOS Update installed on your phone. After that, follow these steps:

  • Open system Settings > Additional Settings > Accessibility.

Note: “Beam for notification” visualizes notification sounds and ringtones using the camera flash and screen. If you’re sensitive to light, use this feature with caution.

And that’s it! I hope you find this new hidden HyperOS feature interesting and that it adds something new to your device experience. I’m currently digging into many new hidden features of the latest update, and I’ll be sharing them with you, so stay tuned with XHyperOS for more tips and tricks.
