Use the People App on Microsoft Lumia 535
Thor, Rushell, Inukshuk, Jen M
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to use the People's application on a Microsoft Lumia 535 smartphone.
What we need to do first is turn the phone on by pressing the power button located on the right-hand side of the phone
Once the phone is activated, we are going to swipe up
We are on the Home screen now, and we need to access the People's application, which is the People tile up top
If you do not have the People's tile on the Home screen, then you are going to need to go to the App menu by scrolling across the phone screen from right to left
Scroll down to find the People's app. You can PIN it to the Home screen if you so desire.
We're going to press on the People's tile
Now, we're going to enter it, and we will see Contacts at the top
We are going to be able to add contacts, which we can do by pressing on the plus icon at the bottom
I will tap on Stan, my good friend.
We can call him, or we can text him by tapping on the options on his profile screen
By scrolling from left to right, we can look his options, history, and other things that we have in common.
By pressing on the ellipsis at the bottom right of the screen, we can also share contacts or delete that contact
We have other options as well
The pencil icon is for editing the contact.
Back at the Contacts screen, if we swipe left, we also have What's New, set up account
If we want to set up our account, we can do that by pressing on set up account. We have a number of accounts, from Facebook to several others.
We need to add a Microsoft account, so we can do that by tapping on it
Microsoft Account Settings will appear
Check to make sure everything is set up as you wish it to be, and then tap the check mark at the bottom of the screen.
We also have Rooms, which includes Family Rooms, and we have Groups. These can be found by scrolling to the right past the Setup Account screen.
Tapping the ellipsis on the bottom right will bring up settings, so tap on that
Here we can add contacts, as well as some other different things
We will look at this more in a second after we finish looking at the other areas.
Back under Rooms, you will see Family Rooms
I talked about this in another video, so if you search on our website, you will find the video and tutorial explaining how to use Family Rooms.
We also have another group, Best Friends
When you click on that the group-specific screen will come up
It says, Tag Members to add to your best friends. Then you can use the group to see social updates for just those folks or text them all at once.
We can pin this group to Home screen by clicking on the thumbtack icon at the bottom
We can also use the icon with the two people to add someone to the group
Click the left arrow to go back
If we press the ellipsis again at the Whats New screen, this will bring up settings. Press on that to go to settings.
We've got filter contact list, which will pick which accounts we'll see and those we don't want to see
Add contacts at the top includes adding contacts, accounts and social apps.
Import from SIM is very useful if you have a SIM card, and you need to import from your SIM card
Further down, we can sort by first name or last name, display name by first or last name
Just below these options, you will have the option to use your location, which you can switch on or off with the sliding switch
A final option asks if we want to "Save check-in searches and locations with my Microsoft account to improve search results." Check this box, and it just allows Microsoft to have more information about you
You don't have to click it if you don't want to.
If you press the ellipsis for each section, you will see the different menu options for each element
So this concludes our tutorial on how to access and use the People's application when using a Microsoft Lumia 535. If you have any questions or suggestions about this video then please leave them in the comment section below. You've been watching VisiHow. Goodbye.
