Add WhatsApp Contact Shortcut on HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, Crystal, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to add a shortcut for a WhatsApp contact 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, swipe the screen up. Once the phone has been unlocked we will see the home screen, and at the bottom we will see 5 icons. We now need to open the application folder.
We can do that by tapping the icon in the middle, at the bottom of the screen. There is a grid of white dots. This is the icon for the applications folder.
Now that the folder has been opened, we need to find and tap the WhatsApp application. There is a WhatsApp icon, which is a green speech bubble with a white telephone inside, and underneath it says "WhatsApp". Your application may be in a different location, so look for the icon in your folder. We want to demonstrate how to add a shortcut for a WhatsApp contact. We're going to add that shortcut to the home screen.
Let's choose a contact. We're going to choose Terry. Press down on it to enter the chat.
Press the menu icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen. There are three small white dots in a vertical line.
Press down on the home button at the bottom of the home screen, in the middle. This will take us back to the home screen where we will see our shortcut for the WhatsApp contact.
If we press down on it, it will take us straight to our chat with that contact so that we can interact with them very quickly.
Let's press the home button again to go back to the home screen.
To remove this shortcut, we press down on the shortcut and hold down until we feel a vibration. The icon will become movable.
We keep our finger pressed down on the screen and drag it up to "REMOVE" at the top until the word turns red, then let go. That will remove the shortcut.
This concludes the tutorial on how to add a shortcut for a WhatsApp contact on an HTC One M8.
