MIUI Cloud Messaging service is pre-installed on all Xiaomi Mi smartphones in order to allow a free exchange of messages by routing messages via an IP instead of using an SMS gateway by the carrier. Just so that you know, the routing process stores device and SIM identifiers on the company’s servers anonymously which include IMEI and IMSI numbers with inclusion to the phone number.
An update was given by Xiaomi Global Vice President yesterday on Google+ which is clarifying the facts behind the MIUI Cloud Messaging feature which was initially a trouble for the company. Hugo Barra also says ” Since we believe it is our highest priority to protect privacy and user data, we have decided to make MIUI Cloud Messaging an optional service for users.”
He also states “We apologize for any concern caused to our device users across the globe. We would also like to thank media and users who have been sending us opinions and valuable feedback which will definitely allow us to improve and provide better Internet services.”
In case you missed the push notification which is usually provided via an OTA update, you could manually check the update by going through Settings > About Phone > System Updates. Xiaomi is a Chinese based company and has recently arrived to India via Flipkart.
