Xiaomi is the top smart TV brand in India right now. To recollect Xiaomi launched its first Mi TV in India early last year. In just one year or so the company managed to become the No 1 TV brand in the country. Kudos for this achievement. Xiaomi is now aiming to improve Mi TV user’s experience and with that has announced Android TV 9 software update for some Mi TVs.
All Mi TVs that are available in the country run Android TV 8 (Oreo) out-of-the-box. On Friday, Xiaomi India officially announces that two Mi TVs — Mi TV 4A Pro 32-inch and Mi TV 4C Pro 32-inch — will get Android TV 9 update starting today, August 30.

Commenting on the event Sudeep Sahu, Product Manager Mi India says, “Mi TV 4A Pro /4C Pro Android TV 9.0 update roll out has started. All other Pro series models are planned to receive this 9.0 update later. While existing Android TVs in India are getting 8.0 we are trying to lead this change in the TV industry.”
