  • Does Xiaomi Mi A1 have Dual app features or a Second space or a Guest mode in it?

    A

    Answered By Aashish Chandrasekar | 2 years ago

    No, Mi A1 does not have a Dual app feature like MIUI running other Xiaomi phones because the Mi A1 runs stock android in it and the stock android phones do not have this feature in it.

    But there is an alternative in Playstore. You can download Parallel from the play store (Parallel app) Then configure it properly to install two apps.
