Thor, Rushell, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to share messages or files from WhatsApp to another application 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
Find a chat and press down on it to enter that chat
Now we want to demonstrate how to share messages or files from WhatsApp to another application. This technique works with all types of messages, including photos, audio files, and regular text messages.
However, it will not work with maps because we can't actually select maps in the same way as with other files or text
Choose a message and press down on it
Continue to hold down on the message or file until a slight vibration occurs.
The message or file will them be highlighted in blue
A green bar will also appear across the top of the screen
We want the share icon, which looks like three dots connected by two lines
It's the second icon from the right in the green bar.
Press down on that icon to bring up some options at the bottom of the screen
It says, "Share with", and then several options are listed.
We can scroll that list up to reveal even more sharing options
There are a wide variety of applications we can use to share our photo or message. We can use "Instagram", "Viber", "LinkedIn", "Skype", "Twitter", "Facebook", email or "Gmail". There's quite a few options.
Choose an application to share the message
In our demonstration, we're going to use "Gmail", so press down on that.
This will open up a new Gmail message with the file automatically added
It says, "VisiHow sent you an image file!"
All we need to do now is choose a contact
Then we can send the email by tapping on the icon that looks like a paper airplane located on the right side in the red bar at the top
Then we will have successfully shared this message or file from WhatsApp to another application.
This concludes our tutorial on how to share messages or files from WhatsApp to another application on an HTC One M8
