Edited by Thor, Alexander Avdeev, Eng
Hello! Welcome to VisiHow and to the series of videos on how to use WhatsApp on the HTC One M8! In this video, we are going to show you how to select a notification tone for group notifications.
To begin, we 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, we swipe the screen upwards.
Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the home screen. There will be icons at the bottom. It is one of the icons that we need to access now, as we need to open up the applications folder.
To open up the applications folder, we need to tap the icon located at the bottom of the home screen.
The icon is in the middle and has a grid made of white dots. Tapping the icon will open up the applications folder.
In the applications folder, we need to find the WhatsApp icon.
The icon is a green speech bubble with a white telephone inside. Underneath the icon, there is "WhatsApp". The WhatsApp application location may vary in the application folder; therefore, we need to find it.
Once we have found it, we tap it to enter the application.
We need to tap the icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen.
The icon has three small white dots in a vertical line. Tapping the icon will open up a menu.
We need to tap the option at the bottom, "Settings".
In the "Settings" menu, we need to tap the "Notifications" option.
We need to scroll down until we have reached the "Group notifications" section.
Underneath "Group notifications" section, we tap "Notification tone".
This is the option we want. In this example, there is "Carnation" underneath "Notification tone", indicating that this is the tone currently selected. We can have a different tone for group notifications. We can choose a tone from a long list of different notification tones.
We can listen to the tones by tapping the one that we want to listen to.
"Freesia" is very brief and nice. "Foxtail" is interesting.
Once we've selected the one that we are satisfied with, we make sure that the green circle is next to it; and tap the word "OK".
The word is in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. We can see that under "Notification tones", we have our selected tone. It is "Foxtail" in this video. This indicates that we've successfully changed the option.
This concludes the tutorial on how to select a notification tone for group notifications in WhatsApp on the HTC One M8.
