Following Honor 10 Lite, Honor 8X VoWiFi (WiFi calling) support rolling out with February patch
Honor 8X users can be considered as one of the most fortunate Android users among all of the Honor smartphones. To give you some perspective, the Android 10 update is already being served to the Honor 8X devices.
While the same configuration devices like Huawei P Smart+ 2018 / Nova 3i and Honor Play have been left out from the list of devices that will get Android 10.
Though thousands of users have filed a petition regarding Android 10 updates on Huawei P Smart+ 2018 / Nova 3i and Honor Play, all went in vain as they will not get the Android 10 update.
Coming back to the Honor 8X, we have earlier reported that the VoWiFi feature, on the device, was expected to arrive on the devices along with the February 2020 security update.
And as per a recent development, Honor is finally rolling out this update for the users of the Honor 8X. The update along with the February 2020 patchset, enables WiFi Calling (VoWiFi) feature for the device. Notably, the Honor 9 Lite got this feature alongside the February 2020 patch yesterday.
The OTA comes with version number V10.0.0.180 and weighs in around 287 MB in size. You can check out the official changelog of this update along with the screenshot of the same:
– Enables VoWiFi features for a better voice call experience with certain carriers.
– Integrates Android security patches released in February 2020 for improved system security.
Just for a reminder, the update will be arriving via OTA in batches, meaning that it will take some time in arriving on all of the units.
However, if you have not got the notification for this new update on your Honor 8X, then you can head over to Settings>>System Updates>>Check for updates for manual checking.
