Add Contact in Skype on HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, Rushell, Eng
Hello and welcome. In this video tutorial, we are going to show you how to add a contact in Skype on an HTC One M8.
To begin, press down on the Power button located on the top of the phone, and swipe up to enter the home screen.
We now need to open the Applications folder, which we can do by using the icon located at the bottom of the home screen and in the middle.
It is a grid made up of white dots.
Press down on this icon, and it will open up the "Apps" folder.
We now need to find the "Skype" application.
There is the "Skype" icon, which is a a white "S" inside a blue bubble. Underneath, it also says "Skype".
Press down on the "Skype" icon, and that will open up the application.
The "Skype" icon may be located in any position in the Apps folder.
We now need to use the icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.
There are three small white dots in a vertical line.
Press down on that icon to open a menu.
We want the option at the top that says "Add people", so press down on that.
Now, in the text box at the top it says, "Name, email or phone number".
We can find people on Skype using either the name, the email address or the phone number. We have the keypad, so we can use that to type in one of those options.
For our demonstration, we're going to use an email address.
Then when we've typed in the complete email, the name of the contact should come up.
There's no profile photo, and that's because we can only see the profile photo if we are actually friends with that person.
Press down on the contact to add them.
It will take us to this page, where we'll be able to add that person to our contact list.
It says, "tom thumb is not a Skype contact yet."
Press down on the blue bar that says "Add to contacts".
This opens a message, which we can personalize, to send to this contact.
It currently says, "Hi, I'd like to connect with you on Skype."
If we press down in the bar, we can edit the message if desired.
We can send the message by pressing down on the blue bar with the white check mark on it.
Then it says, "Contact request sent", along with our message.
Now, we just need to wait for our contact to reply and accept our friend request.
This concludes our tutorial on how to add a contact in Skype on an HTC One M8.
If you want to add more contacts, just follow the same procedure that we've shown you in this video tutorial.
