Xiaomi MIUI Tip: How to access applications or settings by Back Touch feature

Usually, you perform specific actions on your smartphone by pressing physical buttons or tapping the front screen. But Xiaomi has introduced a new and innovative way to trigger an action, command, or shortcut just by tapping the back of your phone.

Yes, I’m talking about the option “Back touch”. With the use of the back touch feature, you can set your Xiaomi mobile to react to a double or triple tap on its back. That tapping can lead to a variety of actions, such as opening the Home screen, taking a screenshot, open the camera, muting your phone, etc.


It can also turn on certain accessibility features, such as the Magnifier or Voice Control. Also, it can enable any Siri Shortcut you’ve created on your phone. The back tapping is sensitive enough that it even works through a case.

If your Xiaomi smartphone is compatible with the Back Touch function and you want to know how to set it up and use it, do check the following steps.

How to Set up “Back Touch” Feature:

  • Open Settings of your phone
  • Click on Additional Settings
  • Go to Gesture shortcuts
  • finally, tap on Back Touch
    • Once inside, choose “Double Rear Touch” or “Triple Rear Touch”
    • Select the action you like to be carried out, and you are done.
