Get Xiaomi’s MIUI 8 Touch Assistant Function on your Android Phone

MIUI 7 China Developer ROM 6.5.19 changelog preview is finally out and many are enthusiastic about it. This developer ROM comes with an interesting feature known as “Touch Assistant” and I must tell you more about it.

First of all, the “Touch Assistant” is an MIUI 8 feature, but Mi fans can enjoy it even feature before MIUI 8 release by updating to MIUI 7 China Developer ROM 6.5.19. To enable it, they must only find their way into Settings -> Additional settings -> Touch assistant.

However, if you are also curious, here I am to help you. You know that curiosity killed the cat, but it isn’t always a bad thing and this is one of those cases. You can also get this feature right now on any of your Android devices and once you enable it, you will see a small and translucent circle on the right side of the screen.

Touch it and this gesture will display no less than five more circles. Each circle represents nothing else than a shortcut for apps and system settings. So, you are not at all wrong to see MIUI 8’s Touch Assistant as some sort of an iOS Assistive Touch replica and it’s true that this feature is designed to access your favorite apps and settings easier than ever. How can you get this on your Android device?

EasyTouch can make it possible. This app from Play store is great as it adds a floating button on the right of screen, which means that it can provide a very convenient way to access your apps, the Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Mobile Data, your GPS, the flashlight and more.
