Since Xiaomi wanted to follow the trend of entering the show notch and now instead of reducing it to drop shape, many have complained about no longer be able to display the notification icons on your smartphone. In the first case, it was not really possible to view them in any way whatsoever, then we introduced on the Stable ROM the possibility of viewing them but only for a few seconds and only when a notification arrived. and finally is now in beta test the possibility to finally display each notification permanently on the status bar, right next to the notch.
Well, not everyone is ready to wait for the last phase of testing and for some viewing notifications is vitally important. an Italian developer offers us a “do it yourself” solution that at the moment it largely solves the problem notifications next to the notch on MIUI. We are talking about the application Notch notifications for MIUI, developped by Andrea Zanini, which makes its application available directly on the Google Play Store completely free, even if in the application itself you can upgrade to access the PRO version to support the developer in his work.
As the name of the app suggests, Notch Notifications for MIUI allows you to permanently displays notification icons in the status bar next to the notch. So let’s see how to do it quickly and easily.

There is no preset preset based on the phone and so you will have to do some testing to find the ideal position (in my case in the photo there are the display settings on Redmi 7).
As you can see everything is very simple, who knows what technical knowledge is not needed but some premise needs to be done. First of all Notch notifications for MIUI it is not fully optimized because there are some bugs that I hope the developer will have Andrea Zanini resolve soon.
to begin the settings are not immediate and therefore to see the results each time you have to close the application and restart it.
