How is it going people?

If you remember last week’s community post, I had teased something special coming your way soon. Well, now that it is here, it’s our pleasure to announce that POCO F1 has received the Widevine L1 certification via OTA as promised!

To be honest, it was a rough few months, as many people thought it was nothing but a PR stunt. Many also assumed that delivering this security certification through OTA was not possible, just because it had never been done before. As a brand which believes in gunning for the top every single time, and for whom customer satisfaction lists the highest in its list of priorities, we knew we had to get it done. Our faith in our developers and our partners has led to today, where we can proudly tell our POCO fans to keep on believing, as we go and achieve other milestones.


So, What is Widevine L1 Exactly?
According to Google’s digital rights management system, the Widevine L1 certification is a primary requirement if you want to stream HD content from streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime & Hotstar, among others. It operates as an encryption scheme to securely distribute video content to consumer devices.

How Do I Get Widevine L1 on my POCO now?
We have rolled out the Widevine certification as part of the closed MIUI for POCO beta(version 9.2.25). Beta testers can search for the update & install it to get the L1 certificate & enjoy HD streaming.

What if I am Not on MIUI Beta?
As per our update policy, once we have tested performance and other metrics during the beta phase, we will roll out the certification as part of our Stable MIUI build soon. Watch this space for more information.

Which Vendors Are Working With Widevine L1 for POCO?
Currently, Amazon Prime & Hotstar can both stream content in 1080P on your POCO phone. Unfortunately, Netflix is still not on board with but you can still download videos in best quality.

Good job guys! This will shut some mouths.
Anyhoo, I hope to see Netflix adoption soon. It's the primary streaming service in many parts of the world.
