The updates are going to visit us through OTA, which means it'll take time for sure. Moreover, it's a global stable ROM. Which means the delay is even more understandable.


The good thing on the part of the company is that they are bringing this feature for budget smartphones too. So, people with affordable phones will also be able to enjoy it.


The MIUI 8.2 global stable ROM for the Redmi 2 is bringing the three-fingered swipe gesture for getting screenshots. Good to know that this feature is visiting the Redmi 2 too.
