Edit Roaming Downloads on WhatsApp for HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, Crystal, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to edit what media is automatically downloaded in WhatsApp when roaming on an HTC One M8.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the power button located on top of the phone.
Once the phone has been activated we will see the lock screen.
To unlock the phone, swipe the screen up.
Once the phone has been unlocked we will see the home screen, and at the bottom we will see 5 icons. We now need to open the application folder.
We can do that by tapping the icon in the middle, at the bottom of the screen.
There is a grid of white dots. This is the icon for the applications folder.
Now that the folder has been opened, we need to find and tap the WhatsApp application.
There is a WhatsApp icon, which is a green speech bubble with a white telephone inside, and underneath it says "WhatsApp". Your application may be in a different location, so look for the icon in your folder.
We now need to tap the menu icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen.
There are three small white dots in a vertical line.
Tap on the second option, "Media auto-download".
Tap on "When roaming".
This refers to what type of media will be auto-downloaded when roaming. In this case it says, "No media" underneath. That is the default option because it can be quite expensive to download media when roaming.
To add an item to the list of media that will be auto-downloaded when roaming, press down on the boxes to put a check mark in them.
All of the boxes are empty, so we will select them all. All of these options will be added to the list of media that will be auto-downloaded when roaming.
To deselect an option and take it off the list, press down on the box until the check mark has disappeared.
When we're happy with our choices, we can press down on "OK".
That will confirm our choice.
This concludes the tutorial on how to edit what media is automatically downloaded in WhatsApp when roaming on an HTC One M8.
