Saturday June 15, 2019
SWNS When you think of a bingo hall, I’m going to take a wild guess and say the last thing that springs to mind is a room full of drugs. A dobber? Sure. A group of rowdy pensioners waiting (im)patiently to hear their numbers shouted out? 100 per cent. Legs eleven? Probably. Cannabis though?

Final Fantasy VII Remake Preview: A Stunning, Faithful Recreation Of A Classic
Thursday June 13, 2019
When the Final Fantasy VII Remake was first announced during E3 2016, I lost my tiny mind. A gorgeous, modern, and completely from the ground up remake of one of the greatest RPGs of all time – not to mention one of my personal favourites – was a dream come true. But then the project … "Final Fantasy VII Remake Preview: A Stunning, Faithful Recreation Of A Classic"

Key features of the updated POCO Launcher include a beautiful minimalist design, smoother scrolling in the app drawer, apparently greater privacy with app hiding options and the launcher’s semi-transparent background.
In the video, Xiaomi showed off its customisable background settings, turning the percentage of the light background down so the wallpaper could faintly show through. The same was done with the dark background to give the layout a more muted look. With this update, you can get the benefits of dark mode without sacrificing the personalised look of your phone.
Xiaomi has also demonstrated the launcher’s flexible app management options. Now you can create your own custom groups and add and remove apps from them easily, to ensure you don’t have to waste any time finding what you need.

POCO Launcher can also automatically group apps by category or colour so you don’t have to spend an hour cleaning up your app drawer yourself if you’re happy to let POCO take the reins.
Other new features for the launcher include Android’s dark mode, a double tap option to lock the device, the ability to switch between the Dots and Count style notification badges, more local results shown in the search tool, an option to lock home screen icons in place and full compatibility with Android Q.
The launcher is also able to support a higher number of Android phones outside of Xiaomi’s own range. This means that you can take advantage of the Pocophone’s highly customisable layout without having to splash out on a brand new phone.

As far as the phone in the video goes, there is speculation on social media as to what the new phone could be. Some think it’s the Pocophone F2, while others believe it is the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3. The POCO Launcher 2.0 beta is available to download on the Google Play Store now.
