Poco F1 latest update brings HD streaming support

  • Widevine L1 support brings HD streaming to Prime Video, Hotstar
  • Poco F1 also gets latest 60FPS 4K video recording support
  • The update brings March Android security patch

Poco F1 users are getting the MIUI 10 3.4.0 Stable ROM update, with the biggest change definitely Widevine L1 support. After testing it for a brief period, Xiaomi has confirmed it is now rolling out Widevine L1 support for Poco F1 users. This means that users will be able to stream Amazon Prime and Hotstar in HD, after they install the latest update. With the update, Poco F1 users are getting 4K recording at 60FPS, a Game Turbo Mode to boost the gaming experience, and the latest security patch as well. The update is rolling out via OTA in a phased manner, so it may not be available for download immediately.

General Manager of Poco India, C Manmohan has tweeted that the rollout is underway. He confirms that Poco F1 is getting the anticipated Widevine L1 support with this MIUI 10 3.4.0 Stable ROM update. Widevine L1 brings HD streaming support for Amazon Prime Video and Hotstar. However, Poco F1 is yet to get Netflix HD streaming support. Xiaomi has confirmed that HD support for Netflix should arrive soon. This update also upgrades the security patch to March 2019, and a new Game Turbo mode for boosting the gaming experience.

Poco F1 Review

The changelog shared by Manmohan says that this update also brings a new NFC shortcut in the notification shade, a new ability to restrict access to notification shade while the phone is locked, and the ability to stay on the lock screen even after using Face Unlock. The company had said that it would add 4K video recording at 60fps support in February this year, but that didn't happen. However, this new update brings the anticipated support for 4K 60fps. Earlier, Poco F1 only allowed 30fps frame rate as the maximum for recording 4K videos. There's also a new UI tweak that will show a floating window for incoming calls during gameplay.

This update also brings a slew of fixes including an issue that caused a delay in ending calls, and an error that caused the status bar shortcut and the floating notifications for calls to appear at the same time. It has optimised Face Unlock efficiency and face data recording. The update alters the status bar height to match the height of the notch, and has fixed an issue that didn't allow the LED light to blink when the battery was low. The update also fixed an issue that didn't allow the battery low warning to appear in landscape mode, and an issue that didn't allow the media playback volume to be restored after it was lowered by an incoming notification.

The incorrect notification badge issue for the WhatsApp icon has been fixed, and errors on the Clock app and Camera apps were also fixed. The update fixes an issue that force closed the Camera app when it was closed and opened again in video mode. The update also brings a redesigned Mi Cloud page, and optimised Sync Settings as well. Manmohan added that the update also brings a system stability patch.

As mentioned, the update is a phased rollout, so it may be a few days before it reaches all users. Keep checking in Settings menu to see if you've received the new update, and update manually. Let us know any other changes that you notice after updating your Poco F1 in the comments below.
