If you have upgraded your Xiaomi phone to MIUI 8, you might have noticed the "Promoted Apps" showing related apps below open folders. I find this quite irritating and so would you, I suppose. I do not understand why Xiaomi would include this feature anyway. It's like any other free Android app with promoted ads bundled in. Anyway, I suppose many users would be willing to remove this.
Follow this short video how to disable or remove the promoted apps from Xiaomi / Mi Phones:
Note that the "Promoted Apps" appear on each folder.
There should have been a setting from where the "Promoted Apps" can be disabled with a single switch. But no, you will have to open each folder and disable it.
To disable the "Promoted Apps" do the following:
- Tap to open a folder
- Tap on the name of the folder
- Just below the name of the folder, tap to disable the "Promoted Apps"
