Edited by Thor, Rushell, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how you how to add home and work addresses to the Google Maps application on an HTC One M8.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the Power button located on the top of the phone.
Once the phone has been activated, we will see the Lock screen.
To unlock the phone, swipe the screen upwards.
Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the Home screen, and at the bottom of the screen, we will see several icons.
This is the area we need to focus on because we need to open the Applications folder.
To do that, we need to press the icon in the middle at the bottom of the screen.
It has a grid of white dots, and this is the icon for the Applications folder.
Press down on this icon, and it will open up that folder.
Now, we need to find the Google Maps application.
In this example, it is located at the top of the screen.
It has an icon of a map with a red pin inside. Underneath the map icon, it says the word "Maps".
Press down on "Maps", and it will open up the Google Maps application.
We want to add our home and work addresses to the application. Since these two locations are very important for us, and we probably spend quite a bit of time at each one, it may be quite common for us to need directions to and from one of these addresses to other locations. Adding our work and home addresses to Google Maps helps us to access those locations very quickly.
First, we should press down on the icon at the top left-hand corner of the screen.
This is the three gray horizontal lines, and it is the menu icon.
We want to tap on the first option that says, "Your places".
Toward the middle of the screen it says, "Home" and "Work".
We currently have an address for work, and we can edit this.
However, for now we are going to focus on "Home" because it is empty.
We can then add an address for it.
Now, a text bar has appeared at the top of the screen, and we can use the keyboard to type in a location.
After typing a few characters, the address has come up on the screen, so we will just press on it to select it.
Now, it will save that information.
As we can see, it has saved it, and the address appears under "Home".
Now, if we press down on "Home" or "Work", it will take us to the map where it will place a red pin on that address.
This will allow us to get directions more quickly. Even if the pin was not on the map, we would be able to see that it is actually an icon of a house.
We can take away the pin by pressing the curved arrow at the bottom left corner of the screen.
At the next screen, press the curved back arrow again.
Now, there is an icon of a house where the red pin was.
This house icon is marking our home address.
Over on the right side of the map, there is an icon of a briefcase.
This is our work address.
If we press down on either icon, it will then add the red pin to that location.
The address will also appear at the bottom of the screen. We can edit these options as well.
Go back to the menu by pressing the three horizontal lines at the top left-hand corner of the screen.
Then tap on "Your places" at the top again.
Now, it's important to note that we can't just press down on one of the locations. Doing that will take us to the map.
Therefore, we should press and hold down on the address for a few seconds.
Then the address will appear, and we will have the option to edit it.
This concludes our tutorial on how to add home and work addresses to the Google Maps application on an HTC One M8.
