Featuring Smart Slip 3.0, the Vivo Y69 enables users to run two apps at the same time by the three-finger swipe gesture. This feature supports Facebook, YouTube, WhatsApp, Line, BBM, WeChat, Viber, built-in Messages and Videos, Play Movies and TV, MX Player, and VCL for Android.

The Andriod Nougat-based handset allows users to split the professional interactions from your personal ones through a built-in software called the “App Clone.” In this app, users are allowed to create multiple accounts in various social media apps that originally limits one personal account at a time.
