As we all know that there is change of mood amongst Indian audience towards Chinese products and every other person wants to boycott Chinese products whether it’s an app, software or any physical product. Chinese smartphone company Xiaomi has huge share in Indian market and seems like it may decrease ahead if Indians continue to boycott the products.
Well, as of not it didn’t affected any of their recent smart phone launch as all the smartphones sold out within minutes. Earlier in June month Xiaomi cellphone stores across India changed it’s logo and sign boards to “Made in India” logo as they feared that their shops may get damage in this anti-china sentiments.
In June Government of India banned 59 chinese apps stating the national security. Indian government banned big applications having millions of users in India. These apps includes TikTok, Shareit, UC Browser, Shein, Mi Community, WeChat, Xender and many more. Over the past few weeks Indian government banned few more Chinese apps which also includes Mi Browser.
After this big step by government of India, Xiaomi India also confirmed that all data of Indian users are stored on Indian servers and not a single data has been shared with anyone located outside of India. After the ban of these apps users weren’t able to use any of their feature in these apps even if it’s pre-installed on their devices.
Xiaomi India also said in their official statement that – “We want to clarify that none of the apps blocked by the Indian Government are available for access on any Xiaomi phones launched in India,”. But, in some of the recent smartphone launch many Indian Tech Youtubers found that few of the banned apps are already pre-installed in these smartphones.
Xiaomi India also confirmed that they are working on an updated MIUI version for all Xiaomi Phones which sold in India will not have any apps pre-installed which is banned by Indian Government. This new MIUI update will rolled out in phased manner over the few weeks.
There has been some concerns over MIUI cleaner app which is not related to Clean master app at all which was blocked by Indian government. Xiaomi already said that they will sort this confusion by removing some definitions from the MIUI cleaner app which raises this major confusion.
