Notify Mi Band 1.3.0 with application icons support

Hi there!

It's been a long time, I guess, but we didn't forget about you, our dear users! Here comes a new update for Notify Mi Band with next features.

Displaying of application icons for Mi Band 2

You need to enable this feature in the settings of the app.



Supported applications list is limited because the icons are a part of the band's firmware. But you can find next apps among supported:
  • Facebook and Facebook BETA,
  • TwitterTweetium and Peregrine,
  • WhatsApp,
  • Instagram BETA and 6tag,
  • Mail and Calendar,
  • Messenger and Messenger BETA,
  • Microsoft Phone (still only missed calls),
  • Microsoft Messaging,
  • Line,
  • Telegram,
  • IM+,
  • Skype and Skype for business,
  • VK (atm there is an OS bug which prevents notifications to arrive, but we hope it will be fixed soon),
  • Hangouts (GMessenger Pro/GMessenger Free),
  • WeChat,
  • QQ,
  • Weibo
  • Taobao


Under the supported apps in the list, you will see a mark if the app has an icon available when the feature is enabled.

Warning: you need the latest firmware of Mi Band to make this work. You can always update it with Bind Mi Band app.

Please, report if you see any issues with the list above or have candidates for 3rd-party apps for above-mentioned services.

Disable notifications when phone is unlocked

Might be handy, since you can sometimes already have seen the notification when it arrives on the band.



Extra vibration

An owner of Mi Band 1? We didn't forget about you!

In this update we added a possibility to assign an extra vibration for some of the apps, which don't have an icon available. In this way, it can help to distinguish notifications from apps with a higher priority (especially good for owners of Mi Band 1).


To toggle extra vibration - just tap application item in the list.



Btw, did you know that you can also remove apps from the list if you removed it from the phone? Just tap an app in the list and select "remove" option.



Also, you will find improved UX and touch responsiveness on some parts of UI, more informative warnings, better onboarding experience.





Despite all the rumors, we are still not able to receive incoming calls information from OS. We keep watching official announcements and will try out and ship working solutions ASAP.



Keep in touch!

UPDATE 1.3.2: Icons for WhatsApp BETA, Viber (former Microsoft Phone icon), Telegram Preview, separate icons for Outlook Calendar and Outlook Mail and a new missed call icon.

    1. I don't think it's pssible, because Messenger doesn't make notification for missed call (at least for me).

  5. Notifying incoming calls (I mean missed calls) doesn't work for me while I have "Disable notifications when phone is unlocked" on. Email app does it do correctly.

    1. Try to uninstall and reinstall the app. Then the application list will populate as notifications come up

    2. Also, reauthorize the app again from BindMiBand

  23. Any news about sync error after long time without syncing?
    It's inconvenient to loose all activity statistics in case if you forget to sync your band for one-two weeks.

    P.S. My Lumia 930 has developer unlock, Visual Studio with Windows Phone SDK is installed, and I'm ready to provide any help you need or take participation in debugging to resolve this issue.

    1. I don't think so. IMO author made app, because on windows platform was gap, platform gap is not present on Android.

    2. There are some apps in play store, but none friendly as Bind Mi Band. The official app is a joke. I'm using Mi Band Master, but still miss Bind Mi Band usability.

    4. Humm, looks good but... Some odds comments. And I'll have to pay before even downloading it, I prefer not to pay for something that can work or not - by the way, the developer seems a little arrogant in his answers

      Delete
    5. if you pay you have 2 hours to test and get refund, I use Mi Band Tools + Mi Fit 3.0 with new options

  30. Hi,

    would it be possible to use default email notification icon also for notifications coming on WM10 via IMAP email account?

    It also seems that missed call notification is displayed only if "Disable notifications when phone is unlocked" is not active.

  32. Hi! :)
    Mi Band 2 user here, on Lumia 950!
    Can you tell me do you have any settings for Mi Band 2 in Bluetooth menu?
    When the phone finds the device, I have no settings at all to change. But there's a drop down menu arrow next to it, whic does nothing... Xd
    When I turn off Bluetooth and turn it back on, it won't connect automatically.

      and dont use insider, use official build 15063 to avoid problems and bugs with BT.

    2. Hvala Dalibore! :)
      Zbunilo me to sto ima kvacica ona kao za dodatna podesavanja, ali nista se ne desava kad kliknem.
      Uglavnom, shvatio sam da sada radi sve iako mi je samo ukljucen BT, dok pise "nije povezano".
      Rebootovao sam Mi Band, sada sve uredno radi!

  38. I've got my band yesterday, all works fine but I'm not receiving notifications for Telegram (official client). It does not appear in the Notify Mi Band app. Unigram works but at the moment I still use the official client because of stability so it would be great to geti it working also.

  40. Hello
    I get the message from my Lumia950 XL: "Your MI band is connected to Windows phone and ready to go!" Combine.
    But even after 10 x times and more only the error message comes with: try again, or ignore.
    10 Windows Mobile version: 1703 Systembuild: 10.0.15063.540
    What can I do?

    1. Remove band in Bluetooth settings and add it back.

      PRO TIP (concerns everybody): Next time, please, write on support email. Your chanses to get response in reasonable time rise up to 99%.

      Delete
  41. Excuse me
    It works. The problem was the server - I. If it vibrates you must tap on the sensor and not the display.

    1. There are some clues that calls notifications might be happening, but not promising anything here yet.

      We don't have icon for Cortana on the band.

  43. I bougth a mi band 2 and use it with my lumia 650. It is works perfectly. I red maybe the future (depends on Microsoft) will solve the incoming call notification. Only this is what is missig from this app.

    And my last question: will be there facebook icon for the facebook notifications? Because at this moment no icon FB icon only app icon.
