Steps

  1. 1
    To get started, press the power button on the right-hand side to access the lock screen, then swipe to unlock and go to the main home screen.
    If you're already on your phone and you're not sure how to go to the main home screen, press the home button at the bottom. That will always take you back to your home screen.

    Hangouts would like to access your contacts, that way you can chat with them and let them know you're on Hangouts.
    I don't actually use Hangouts to chat very much, I do occasionally use it for conversations with some friends of mine, and use it often to make free phone calls. I have no problem with Hangouts having my contacts, some of you may, in which case just tap Don't Allow. I'm going to tap OK.

    It will let me know instantly when something's happening and what's going on. If you set this up and you find that you're disturbed by notifications, you can simply turn it off. Tap on OK.

    Here I have one person in spam and 2 other strange people who want to add me so I'm just going to click accept for everyone.
    I'm not too terribly worried about this because if anyone sends me spam it will be filtered by Google anyways. The more spam I get the better Google becomes at filtering spam and the less I have to worry about Spam.

    You can go into Invitation preferences and choose who can send you an invite.
    We've got options for Following, Acquaintances, Family, Friends, so you can shut out strangers who might disturb you. I'm going to click the button at the top "Can send you an invite".

    So it does allow you to setup a degree of privacy which I like. Tap Back.
