Hello and welcome to VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to download and install WhatsApp on an HTC One M8. This tutorial is for people having trouble finding WhatsApp in the Google Play Store.
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 now want to show you the Google Play Store and that WhatsApp isn't found there. To skip this, go to step 8.
We can tap 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 can find and tap the Play Store application. There is an icon of a white shopping bag with a colorful shape, and underneath it says "Play Store". Your application may be in a different location, so look for the icon in your folder.
We can now search for the WhatsApp app by tapping the search icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen. It's a white magnifying glass. This will open a search bar.
Type in "WhatsApp Messenger". We've already searched for it, so we're going to tap on it. We're going to see that it doesn't show the application. For some reason, it's not here.
We can press the back arrow in the bottom left-hand corner until we get back to the home screen.
We then need to open our browser. We're going to open ours by tapping on the earth icon.
It will take us to the download page where we can tap the green box labeled "Download Now" to download the application.
We can swipe the notification panel down, and we will see a notification when the application is finished downloading. We can tap this notification and it will then ask us to install the application, then we can open it.
We're going to go to the applications folder and tap on the WhatsApp application. You won't need to do this because you will have the "Open" option after installing. It will then take us to the opening page where we need to sign up for WhatsApp.
Tap "Agree and continue" at the bottom.
Here we have to add a phone number. WhatsApp messenger will send a one-time SMS message to verify our phone number. Enter the phone number then tap "OK". WhatsApp will then confirm the phone number by asking "Is this OK, or would you like to edit the number?".
Tap down on "OK" to confirm. We will be brought to a page that says "Waiting to automatically detect an SMS sent to: (phone number)". It will automatically detect the message, we don't need to do anything.
Once that's done, we can add a name by tapping "Type your name here". We're going to put "VisiHow".
Add a profile photo (optional) then press down on "NEXT" in the top right-hand corner of the screen. It will then tell us that we have 1 year of service and starting next year we'll have to pay USD$0.99 per year.
Press down on "Continue" in the bottom bar. That will take us into the application. We have successfully downloaded and installed WhatsApp.
