In this guide, we will show you the steps to enable Android Auto on your Xiaomi device running MIUI Chinese ROM. When it comes to the stock firmware for Xiaomi, there are two major variants- Global and Chinese. With that said, there are a few Xiaomi devices that are solely sold in China, so if a non-Chinese user wishes to get hold of the same, then they will have to export it.
While there’s nothing wrong with that, the major issues arise with the underlying OS skin. Since the entire ROM will be in Chinese, it becomes extremely difficult for non-native users to try it out. Apart from that, it’s no hidden secret that Chinese ROMs accompany a larger number of bloatware apps in comparison with their Global counterpart. Likewise, some crucial apps and services might not even function in this build.
One such app is Android Auto which allows you to mirror your phone’s screen on your car’s infotainment system and use the former’s functionalities wirelessly. However, that might prove to be easier said than done for the Chinese ROM users. Many users have voiced their concern that they are unable to enable Android Auto on their Xiaomi device running MIUI Chinese ROM.
In this regard, you always have the option to flash the global ROM onto your device. however, that ROM isn’t available for every Xiaomi device and some users aren’t willing to flash it due to the technicalities involved. Well, if you are also in the same boat, then this guide will make you aware of a nifty workaround to enable this feature directly on the Chinese ROM itself. Follow along.
