Share Podcasts from Microsoft Lumia 535
Edited by Thor, Crystal, Jen M
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to share a podcast when using the Podcasts application on the Microsoft Lumia 535.
To get started, turn the phone on by pressing the power button on the right-hand side of the phone.
This will bring up the lock screen.
Once the lock screen has been activated, swipe up to unlock the phone and access the home screen.
Find and press the Podcasts tile to open the application.
We can see the tile near the middle of the screen on this device. It has a blue background with a white microphone in the middle. If the Podcasts tile is not pinned to the home screen, swipe left and find it in the apps menu. We want to demonstrate how to share a podcast and we can do this 2 different ways.
The first way is to share a podcast from our favorites.
If we already have the podcast in our favorites, we can share it from there.
If it's not in our favorites, we can swipe across until we get to the "GET PODCASTS" section.
Use the search bar to type in the name or genre of the podcast to search for.
We don't need to do that because the podcast we want to share is in our favorites, so we're going to press the back arrow in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen and then swipe back over to our favorites.
We will select the podcast we would like to share by tapping on it.
Then, we need to swipe over until we are in the "overview" section.
Press down on the menu icon, which is the 3 white dots in a line in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.
The third option from the top is "share", tap on that.
This will give us a selection of different platforms to share with.
On this device, we can share the podcast via "Facebook", "Messaging", "OneNote", "Outlook", and "Twitter" just by tapping on it.
Outlook is our email provider, but if you have a different email provider such as Gmail, it will also appear in the list. We will share it with "Outlook", so we will tap on that.
Now, it has added the URL of the podcast as well as the subject.
The subject in this example is "Thought you'd like this podcast - 'History Extra podcast'". We don't need to write anything, all we need to do is add a contact.
We can add a contact by pressing the black cross inside of a black circle on the top right-hand corner of the screen.
Select a contact and tap on it.
We can add text to the email body as well, just by pressing down on the email body.
The keyboard will appear as well as the cursor.
Once we're satisfied, we can send the email by pressing the black envelope with three black lines in a circle.
This will share the podcast.
This concludes the tutorial on how to share a podcast when using the Podcast application on the Microsoft Lumia 535.
