If you have updated your Xiaomi phone to the latest build of MIUI 9 China ROM, then you must be aware of its myriad nifty features, like the multi-window mode or the notification controls.


Aforesaid, MIUI 9 comes with a lot of enhancements and features and well, if you ask me, some of these features were long overdue. However, apart from these, MIUI 9 has a nifty tool hidden and it goes by the name of Game Booster.

As suggestive of its name, it boosts the performance of your games. In this article today, we will see how the tool works and how it helps in boosting gaming performance in MIUI 9.

How to Enable Game Booster in MIUI 9?

Game Speed Booster is available in the Security app as a tool. All you have to do is tap on to enable it. After the initial setup, you just have to add your games to enjoy a great gaming experience.

A tap on the plus icon is all it needs to add a game.

How Does it Matter?

The Gaming speed boost tool displays a handful of options to optimize the gaming performance. For one, it increases the phone’s CPU usage, disables the DND mode, clear cache, and channels the data connection for game optimizations among other activities.


Also, this mode prevents the phone from switching over to other mobile networks in the middle of games.

This comes helpful, especially during multiplayer games where even a moment’s delay can change the game’s course.


For a faster access, a shortcut can also be created on the home screen.

Additional Settings

The MIUI 9 Gaming mode is also customizable. You can control which functions you’d want to be enabled when you switch over to this mode. For starters, you can choose not to clear the cache or keep the connection priority as it is.


Just tap on the Game Boost tool, go to Settings and toggle off the switches as required. You can also add a set of apps in the exception list.

That’s a Wrap!

This was how you can give a boost to your gaming performance. So, when are you getting started?
