Invite Friends to Viber with Microsoft Lumia 535
Edited by Thor, Crystal, Eng
Hello, and welcome to VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to invite your friends to join the Viber application when using the Microsoft Lumia 535.
To begin, press the power button on the right-hand side of the phone, to turn the phone on. Once the phone is activated, we will see the lock screen.
Swipe the lock screen up to unlock the phone and display the Home screen.
Find and tap the Viber tile to open the Viber application. The Viber tile has a purple background with the Viber logo in white in the middle. The Viber logo is a speech bubble with a telephone in it. If Viber is not pinned to the home screen, swipe from right to left to view the App menu. Find Viber in the App menu and tap it. Once the app has loaded, we will need to find the settings menu.
Tap on the three white dots in the bottom right-hand corner. It doesn't matter what section of Skype we are in, the menu icon will always be there. This icon will open the menu.
Tap on "settings" to go to the settings menu.
Scroll down and tap on "share and invite friends", written in black.
The first option is "invite by SMS", and the second option is "invite by email". We can use either of these to invite our friends. The Viber application has many benefits and a lot of useful features and functions. We can call people internationally for free when calling other Viber members. Let's invite our friends so that we can talk to them for free.
If we tap on "invite by SMS" it will bring up the contacts on the phone, even though we are still in the Viber application. Choose a contact by pressing down on their name or number. This will bring up the messaging window.
The SMS says, "Hi,, I started using Viber. It's an awesome free app for free phone calls and text messages! - www.viber.com/dl". We can send this message to our friend, they will hopefully sign up, and then we can chat with them for free.
Press the send icon to send the message. It's located in the bottom left corner. There's a white envelope in a white circle with 3 lines indicating movement. This will send the SMS. Bear in mind, it will cost you unless you have a texting plan.
Go back to the Viber application by tapping the white back arrow in the bottom left corner. Tap it until we return to the "share and invite" screen.
The second option to invite is by email. Email is free, which is better. Tap on "invite by email" to invite someone by email.
If you have more than one email provider, they will all appear here; tap on the one you want. We only have one, so we will tap on that. That will bring up a new email.
The email is pretty much the same as the SMS invite, but it does have more information about Viber such as features and how to get started.
All we need to do is add a contact by tapping on the black plus sign in the black circle, to the right of To:". Select a contact.
When we're done, we can press the send icon which is a black envelope inside of a black circle, with 3 horizontal lines indicating movement.
This concludes the tutorial on the two ways that we can send invites to our friends to the Viber application when using the Microsoft Lumia 535.
