Xiaomi smartphones

Xiaomi smartphones is a line of primarily Android-based smartphones (meaning they are powered by Google’s Android operating system) owned by electronics company, Xiaomi Inc.

Xiaomi smartphones allow users to access core functions such as making voice calls or sending text messages in addition to shooting videos, browsing the internet and much more. The Google Play store also gives users access to millions of popular apps.

These smartphones have parental controls and safety settings available and these can be accessed through the Google Family Link app. This allows parents to block or limit apps on their child’s smartphone, limit screen time and manage access to specific websites. You can also restrict apps and games on Android devices by using the Google Play parental controls. You can also access parental control settings via Xiaomi’s device settings.
