Xiaomi has been selling its smart TVs in India since early 2018. The company’s televisions in India except for Mi TV 4 run Android TV operating system. Additionally, they also come with a launcher called PatchWall offering content from partner streaming services. Earlier this year, Xiaomi updated it to v3.0. Now, the company is rolling out a new PatchWall 3.4 update with three new changes.

The new PatchWall update for Xiaomi Mi TVs in India arrives ahead of Diwali festive season. The company is expected to sell more televisions in this period compared to previous months. Hence, it makes sense for them to introduce new features at this time of the year.

That said, the PatchWall 3.4 update brings the following three new features to all the Mi TVs in India.

Note: We are not sure if this will be available for the forgotten Mi TV 4 but the Mi TV 4A (32” & 43”) launched alongside it have received the update.

Immersive Carousel

The first thing you notice when you launch PatchWall on Mi TVs is the carousel at the top. In the latest update, Xiaomi has tweaked it in such a way that the content in the carousel act as the background of the entire screen. Thus, the company calls it ‘Immersive Carousel’.
