Send Location in WhatsApp Chat on HTC One M8
Thor, Rushell, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to send a location in a WhatsApp chat 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 we will see several icons
It is one of these icons that we now need to access, as we need to open up the Applications folder.
To do that, we can use 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 that icon, and it will open up the "Apps" folder
We now need to find the "WhatsApp" application
It has the "WhatsApp" icon, which is a green speech bubble with a white telephone inside. Underneath the icon, it says "WhatsApp". The "WhatsApp" icon can be in any position in the "Apps" folder.
Once it has been found, press down on the icon to enter the "WhatsApp" application
We now need to find a chat and press down on it to enter that chat
We now need to use the white paperclip icon at the top of the screen in the green bar
Press down on the white paperclip to open up a menu of options across the top area of the screen
We want the option in the middle on the bottom row
It is a circle with a map in it, and underneath it says, "Location".
Press down on that icon, and it's going to find our current location
When our location has been found, a map will appear at the top of the screen
We can press down on the map and drag it around as desired
We can also zoom in and out on the map by pinching and pulling our thumb and finger apart or together
We can expand the map by pressing down on the icon in the top left-hand corner of the map screen
It's a gray circle a square inside.
Press down on that icon, and it will expand the map
Press down on the same icon again to contract the map again, making it smaller
If we move too far away from our current location, we can press down on the icon at the top right corner of the map
It's a circle with a target inside.
Pressing down on that icon will take us back to our current location
The top result on the list below the map is the option to "Send your current location"
We could send a nearby location by choosing one of the other options on the list
There are several different locations, such as restaurants and nearby businesses that are in our vicinity. If we were saying something like, "Let's meet at the cafe near my house," then we could send the address of the cafe.
We are just going to send our current location, so we'll press down on the top option where it says, "Send your current location"
Now, we can see that we've successfully sent our current location to our contact, so they can find us easily
This concludes our tutorial on how to send a location in a WhatsApp chat on an HTC One M8
