If you have a Xiaomi and you wanted to edit the Interface of your device you will have noticed, as long as your terminal has a Spanish region, that there are apps, such as MIUI forum, the store of the firm or directly the app Themes have missing from your phone. It is not due to any specific update of MIUI, the Xiaomi layer for Android. It also doesn’t matter if your terminal runs Android 8.1 Oreo or Android 9 Pie. The reason is simpler.
Directly several Xiaomi apps have disappeared from Spanish terminals due to legislative problems. That does not mean, on the other hand, that you will never be able to access these tools or download them again. But for this you will have to take into account one thing: in Spain it is not possible.
How to recover missing Xiaomi apps
No, you do not need to leave the country with your phone. If you want to enjoy again, for example, the Themes app for Xiaomi and be able to edit your terminal with the wallpapers, icon pack and official launchers of the Chinese firm, follow these steps.
Go to Settings and in the section System and device click on Additional settings. In the option of Region, open the drop-down menu and select another country in which apps that have disappeared in Spain are allowed. I have used Mexico, although I have verified that with India it is also solved.
If you already had the apps installed on your system, they will reappear on their own. In case you don’t have the apps, you can search for their APK files on the internet or using some alternative stores to Google play. Remember that you can install them using a USB cable or by sending the files through a messaging app to yourself, in order to download it, unzip it, open it and install it on your terminal.
Once this is done, you can now enjoy these official Xiaomi apps on your device from the Chinese firm.
You can regain the original region from your phone. But you have to keep in mind that this will make the apps disappear again. However, any design changes you make with the Themes app, for example, will not be lost. So this guide is a good option when it comes to using, even temporarily, apps that we cannot enjoy with Xiaomi in Spain.
