Video toolbox is an amazing feature offered by MIUI 12 which is missing MIUI 11 & 10. Video toolbox lets you play videos in the background even when the screen is off. It lets you take a screenshot and screen record without letting you move out of the app.
Video toolbox is not native to MIUI 11/10 but this has not been completely ignored. If you haven’t got updated to the latest MIUI 12 then you download full ROM from here. There is a full guide to install updates manually on any Xiaomi device.
But if for some reason you don’t want to update to the MIUI 12 then there is a workaround to get this feature to work on your older Xiaomi devices also.
