On the official website of Xiaomi, quite important news appeared – starting from January 1, 2022, the payment service of the Mi Smart Band 4 NFC fitness bracelet will stop working on application version 5.4.0 and below. Accordingly, if the user currently has an application installed with a version lower than 5.5.0, then immediately after the New Year, the NFC payments function will not work. Fortunately, the situation can be corrected by simply updating the application – this will take no more than five minutes of time.
Follow three easy steps to update your app:
- update the Mi Fit app on your smartphone via Google Play or App Store;
- go to the menu “Profile – Fitness bracelet Mi Smart Band 4 NFC – Bank card”, then remove the token and untie the bank card;
- reconnect all bank cards to the application.
After completing these operations, it is worth checking the version of the application on the smartphone – if it has been updated to version 5.5.0 or newer, then there will be no problems when paying using NFC.
