Infinix Hot 8 update features

Social Turbo is a new WhatsApp assistant that helps WhatsApp users with a few really useful features. These include a WhatsApp call recorder that allows you to record WhatsApp calls. There is also a ‘Video Beauty’ toggle that will enhance your look and the brightness in WhatsApp video calls. A customizable ‘Sticker List’ also makes the cut. A neat ‘Peek Mode’ feature lets you look into messages without it being read. This will prevent the sender from getting the blue ticks to read receipts. A ‘Clean WhatsApp’ feature is also present. This feature will help users wipe out files that take up a lot of memory space. Also Read - Infinix Hot 8 review: A promising entry-level smartphone

A new Game Assistant mode provides a slide-out panel during gameplay. This panel can be used to access quick toggles that will reduce distractions during gameplay. An anti-interference mode will block out all kinds of notification including incoming calls and alarms.

There are new gestures in the Infinix Hot 8 update. One of these is the ‘Answer with a gesture’ feature that allows you to answer or reject calls without touching the phone. There is also ‘Smart screen lifting’. The feature turns on the screen when the phone is raised and turns it off when lowered.
