Incoming calls, app alerts

Like the Mi Band 3, Mi Band 4 also displays incoming calls and app notifications. You can also reject calls on the Mi Band 4. Setting this up can be a little tricky but here's how it can be done. On the Mi Fit app, tap on 'App Alerts' and select the apps you wish to get notifications from. Incoming calls can be activated by selecting the same on Mi Fit. You can read message contents on the Mi Band 4 display directly.

Music and volume controls

One of the niftiest features of Mi Band 4 is music controls. Mi Band 4 lets you control music playback from popular apps like YouTube Music and Spotify. Once you start playing music on your phone, it will automatically sync on the Mi Band 4. Here, users can play/pause songs, skip songs and control volume as well.

Watch faces

Along with the colour display Xiaomi also introduced watch faces on the Mi Band 4. On the fitness band there are three watch faces to choose from. You can choose from a lot more on the Mi Fit app. Xiaomi also lets users set their photo as the watch face on Mi Band 4.

Alarms

Mi Band 4 can work as a wristband alarm. You can set up alarms directly on the Mi Band 4 under the 'More' section. Once the alarm is set, the Mi Band 4 will wake you up with a "light vibration" as Xiaomi puts it.
