Edited by Thor, Alexander Avdeev, Eng, VisiHow
Hello! Welcome to VisiHow! In this video, we are going to show you how to write a status in WhatsApp on the HTC One M8.
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 now 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 "Status" option to open up the "Status" menu.
We want the "Your current status" section. Our current status is "Hi, there! I am using WhatsApp." This is the status that people can see when they look at our WhatsApp page. If they want to talk to us, they will see our status and know what we are up to and what we are doing. What we can do is write a new status.
We tap the status text section.
The virtual keyboard will be opened. The status text area will be highlighted.
We can tap the delete button or arrow.
This will delete the whole status in one go. There will be the number 139. This is how many characters we can use in our status.
We can tap the smiley to use emoticons.
Let's add a couple of smileys by tapping them.
We can type some text as well.
Let's type "happy days"
After we type the text, we tap "OK".
We will see that our status will be "happy days" with a smiley.
This concludes the tutorial on how to write a status in WhatsApp on the HTC One M8. If you have any questions, comments, or queries regarding this video or about the process that you have witnessed in this video, then please leave them in the comment section below. We shall answer them for you.
