If you happen to own a Redmi Note 3 Snapdragon edition, then you'll be happy to know that Xiaomi has just announced MIUI 8 Global Beta is now rolling out to everyone.
The new beta update version 6.9.9 is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, so expect quite a few new features and improvements to be included.

Also, Redmi Note 3 users can now tap the date in the status bar to open the Calendar. There's also a new feature that allows you to hold the empty spot on the Home screen to enter the editing mode.
When it comes to audio, Xiaomi made some under the hood optimization, which now allows users to record music in stereo quality. Aside from these new features, the Chinese company included some fixes as well.
Fix - Issues with volume level notification in Second space when using earphones;
Fix - Device didn't respond after updating and rebooting;
Fix - FC issues when switching between themes.
One of the most common issue reported by those who installed the new ROM is the fact that the fingerprint application crashes often. Some also complain that their phones are a bit slower with the new MIUI 8 Global Beta 6.9.9 installed.
