In addition to your media files, the service also backs up your home screen to store installed apps and applied settings. This way, when changing devices or formatting the current device, it is possible to recover this data with the Mi account. There are also storage options for voice recorder, contact list, message history, calendar, Wi-Fi settings and Mi Browser data.

Finally, Xiaomi Cloud also includes a recycle bin to restore deleted files and a way to find your device in case of loss. To access all your cloud files through your browser, all you need to do is go to and log in with your Mi account.

Xiaomi Cloud: prices

If you want to use more storage space, you can upgrade to Xiaomi Cloud paid plans. However, this requires an international transaction: these subscriptions are billed in Hong Kong dollars and the transaction is processed by Mi Credit, with PayPal as the payment method.

There are, in all, three different plans: Premium, with 50 GB of cloud storage; Mega, with 200 GB of storage; and Ultra, with 2TB of storage. Prices are offered from HK$36 for three months (approximately R$26, in direct conversion).
