Edited by Thor, Sid Bedekar, Jen M
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to mute and unmute a game in the Play Games application 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 screen, swipe the screen upwards.
Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the home screen and at the bottom, we will see these icons. It is one of these icons that we now need to access as we need to open up the applications folder.
To open the applications folder, we need to press the icon located in the bottom center of the home screen. The icon is a grid of white dots.
In the applications folder, we need to find the Play Games application. Mine is located here. We can see that there is an icon which looks like a green controller and underneath, it says "Play Games". Your Play Games application may be in a different position in this folder. Therefore, you will need to find it and press down on it to enter the application. What we want to do in this video tutorial is show you how to mute and unmute a game in this application. What this means is that if we mute a game, we will not receive any notifications from it. We don't want to turn Off notifications for all the games because then we may miss notifications that we need. This allows us to keep particular games silent so that we can continue receiving notifications from other games.
To mute a game, we want to select a game that we have already downloaded and installed. We have one here called "Warlings" and we can press down on it. We don't need to enter the game but we just need to enter the game area in the Play Games application.
Press down on this icon in the top right-hand corner. The icon looks like three white dots in a vertical line.
We only have one option to choose which is "Mute" so we can press down on this option to mute the game.
It says, "Game Warlings has been muted".
If we press down on the dots again, we have the option to "Unmute" the game.
We are going to go back by pressing the back arrow which is the white arrow in the top left-hand corner of the screen.
Now we are going to press this icon in the top left-hand corner of the screen. The icon has three white horizontal lines and it will open a new menu.
In the new menu, we want to tap the "Settings" option.
We can scroll down in the settings to find a section called "MUTED GAMES". We also have the name of the game we just muted which is "Warlings". This is how we can find all of our muted games if we have muted a lot.
We can also unmute games from this location by pressing down on the game until a text box shows up.
It will say "Let Warlings send game requests and notifications." and we can press "UNMUTE" to unmute the game.
We can see that the game has been unmuted and has disappeared from this list.
This concludes our tutorial on how to mute and unmute a game in the Play Games application on an HTC One M8.
