INTRO: If you haven’t been living under a rock, you would know that the Indian Government recently banned 59 Chinese apps in response to the growing tension between the two countries. Apple and Google had already removed these apps from their respective app stores. One of the apps among those banned was Xiaomi’s Mi Community and it’s finally respecting the government’s directive – fortnight too late.
In a politician statement shared on its forum, Xiaomi has temporarily disabled the Mi Community app and website in India. The website is currently unreachable and if you have already got the app downloaded, the house page will load but you won’t be ready to read any of the community posts. You will see a ‘web page not available’ error within the app.
The main Mi Community website, as said by the reports from GizmoChina, will direct you to the official notice. But, we didn’t see the notice in our case. The website is just unreachable for us. You can, however, inspect Xiaomi’s official statement within the image below.
As you’ll read above, Xiaomi finds adhering to “the orders, processes, and protocols required by the authorities” its corporate responsibility. It plans to satisfy government authorities to submit a clarification. “Mi Community App adheres to the foremost stringent data privacy and security requirements under Indian law. The privacy and security of our Mi Fans is of utmost importance to us,” adds the corporate.
For those unaware, the Mi Community app may be a forum where Xiaomi smartphone users can discuss new features, post suggestions, and report bugs. It is also where the phone maker makes announcements associated with software updates, patches, and more. You can head to XDA Forums (dedicated to your devices) for any immediate help needed together with your smartphone.
