Turn Bluetooth On or Off on HTC One M8 Running Lollipop
Thor, Claudia, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how you can turn Bluetooth on and off on an HTC One M8.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the Power button located on top of the phone
Once the phone has been activated, we will see the lock screen
To unlock the phone, press down on the screen until we see the lock icon and swipe up
Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the home screen
At the bottom, we will see these icons here. What we're going to do in this video is show you how we can turn Bluetooth on and off. There are two ways to do this.
The quickest way to do this is to find our Quick Menu and that is in our notification panel
To bring out our notification panel, we need to swipe it down.
Let's do that by pressing down at the top of the screen, holding down and swiping down
Now we can see that our notification panel as appeared
If we press down the screen again, hold down and swipe down, we can see that this has brought up our Quick Menu
What we have then is the Bluetooth option here that says the word "Bluetooth" in capitals and above it, it has the Bluetooth icon
Right now it's white and this means it's turned off
It's the default setting for the Bluetooth to be turned off, because it does take up a lot of battery power. It's good to turn it on when we need it. If we don't need it, turn it off again. If we want to transfer something via Bluetooth, it's very useful, and then we can turn it off if we don't need it anymore.
Press down on the icon until it turns green
Now that both the icon and the line is green, it means that the function is now turned on
If we press down on the icon again, it will go white and we can see that now that it has been turned off
The other way we can access the Bluetooth is to go the Setting menu
If we're not in this area for whatever reason, and we find that were in the settings menu already, then we can access this option as well.
This is the icon we need in the top right-hand corner of the screen and we can see it's the Settings white cog icon
Press down on it and it will open up our Settings menu
We can see it says the word "Bluetooth" right at the top, one of the first options
It says "Bluetooth" and it says "Off" as well.
If we press down on the icon on the far right-hand side of the phone, where it says "OFF" in a box, it'll turn on the Bluetooth function
We can see there it says the word "ON" and there is a green part of the box
This is just another way of activating this function, but the first option shown is the quickest option.
This then concludes our tutorial on how to turn Bluetooth on and off on an HTC One M8
