Edited by Thor, Rushell, Jen M
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to create a group and add a photo to that group when using the WhatsApp messaging application on a Microsoft Lumia 535.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the power button located on the right-hand side of the phone.
Swipe the lock screen up from the bottom to enter the home screen.
Locate the WhatsApp tile if it is pinned to your home screen.
The tile has an image on it of a white phone inside a speech bubble.
If WhatsApp has not been pinned to your home screen, swipe across the screen from right to left to open the App menu.
Scroll to find the application.
Tap on WhatsApp to open it.
Next, swipe across the screen and continue to scroll until you get to the chats screen.
Now, tap the right icon on the bottom of the screen.
It has an image of a group of people on it. This will allow us to create a new group.
Tap the text box below Group subject and type in a subject.
You can also add an emoticon by pressing on the smiley face at the end of the text box. For our demonstration, we'll put Football as the group subject.
Now, to add a photo, press the blue square where it says add photo.
This square is located just to the left of Group subject.
From here, we can either take a photo now, choose a photo from one of our albums, or search the web for an image.
Let's search the web, so press on that option at the bottom.
We'll search for Football, so type that in if it is not already there.
Tap the right-facing arrow at the bottom right corner of the screen to begin the search.
There are a variety of images available for football.
Most of these are images represent the American football, but I'm going to choose this one.
It's what people in America would probably call a soccer ball.
Adjust the image as desired.
If the image was bigger, it could be moved around by holding and dragging it along the screen.
When you're happy with the image, press the check mark below the image at the bottom of the screen.
Now, the corresponding photo appears to the left of the group subject name.
To proceed, press the right-facing arrow at the bottom of the screen.
The next thing to do is add participants.
One way to do this is to type a name into the text box at the top.
We can also tap on add participants.
Doing that will bring up a list of people we have chatted with that we can add to our group.
Press on a contact name or number to add that person to your group.
We can add more if needed.
As soon as you are happy with the participants you have chosen, tap the check mark at the bottom of the screen.
Now, the new group has been created.
The message at the bottom says, "You created group Football." All messages that typed in here will be sent to everybody in the group.
The names of people in the group are displayed at the top left.
You can now proceed and send messages as you would normally.
You can add attachments to messages by tapping on the paperclip at the bottom of the screen.
You can also add emoticons by pressing the smiley face.
This concludes our tutorial on how to create a group and add a photo to that group when using the WhatsApp messaging application on a Microsoft Lumia 535.
