As they already promised, MIUI 8 beta builds are live now. The Chinese based rapidly growing smartphone vendor Xiaomi already announced that they will release the first beta build of MIUI 8 on today. As announced, now it is live with the advantages of latest Android Marshmallow.

If you have already registered for receiving beta, you can download it right now. MIUI 8 comes with new animations, a brand new font, and a palette of new colors. Other notable features include: the ability to capture more than what you see on the screen area in one screenshot; the dual account system that provides users full control over their data, address book, and call history; and the Gallery app has picked up some more photo editing capabilities. MIUI 8 also comes with a built-in scanning feature that can read QR codes and business cards.
