Forward a Map Location to Viber Contact on Microsoft Lumia 535
Edited by Thor, Crystal, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to forward a map location to a contact on 'Viber' when using the Microsoft Lumia 535.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the 'power' button located on the right-hand side of the phone. Once the phone is activated, we'll see the lock screen.
Swipe the lock screen up, and that will take us to the home screen.
On the home screen, we need to find the 'Viber' tile. It has a purple background, and in the middle is the Viber logo. This is a white speech bubble with a white phone inside. If Viber has not been pinned to the home screen, swipe left to find it in the Apps menu. Once Viber has been located, press down on it, and this will allow us to enter the application. We are going to show you how to forward a map location to a contact in the 'Viber' application. This is useful for helping other people locate things. For example, if you are meeting your friends at their location, you can send a map with their location to another friend to show them where to meet.
Find a chat. We only have one chat in this example. To find a chat, we will need to be in the 'chats' section which we can see at the top in white lettering. If we're not in this section, we can scroll left or right until we are. We are going to send a message so that we can forward our map location.
Press down on the chat to open it.
The location icon in the right side of the textbox needs to be purple for this to work. If the option is purple, it's on. If the option is off, it will be a white icon.
Send a message by typing in the message and tapping on the send icon, which is the white speech bubble in a white circle. In this example, we've sent a message that says 'Wow'.
There is a very small icon to the right of the message that shows us that we have a location attached. It's a pin, a small circle with a point. If we press down on the icon it will open up the map.
Viber has found the exact location of the message. It's actually very accurate. Now we want to forward this to another contact in the Viber application to share the location with them.
Tap on the 3 dots in a line in the bottom right corner. This will bring up the menu.
We want the bottom option, 'forward via Viber' written in white. Tapping on this option will bring up the Viber contacts.
Choose any contact and tap on them. We only have one contact, so we're going to send the location of our message to the person we were already talking to. The map with the location has been sent. They can tap on it to open up the map in their 'Map' application.
They will be able to navigate the map like they normally would.
This concludes the tutorial on how to forward a map location to a contact on 'Viber' when using the Microsoft Lumia 535.
