Edited by Thor, Alexander Avdeev, Eng
Hello! Welcome to VisiHow! In this video, we are going to show you how to select a new status in WhatsApp on the HTC One M8.
To begin, we turn the phone on by pressing the power button located on the top of the phone
Once the phone has been activated, we will see the lock screen.
To unlock the phone, we swipe the screen upwards
Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the home screen. There will be icons at the bottom. It is one of the icons that we need to access now, as we need to open up the applications folder.
To open up the applications folder, we need to tap the icon located at the bottom of the home screen
The icon is in the middle and has a grid made of white dots. Tapping the icon will open up the applications folder.
In the applications folder, we need to find the WhatsApp icon
The icon is a green speech bubble with a white telephone inside. Underneath the icon, there is "WhatsApp". The WhatsApp application location may vary in the application folder; therefore, we need to find it.
Once we have found it, we tap it to enter the application
We now need to tap the icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen
The icon has three white dots in a vertical line. Tapping the icon will open up a menu.
We need to tap the "Status" option
The status in this video is "Sleeping".
What we can do is we can select on the statuses from the "Select your new status" list
It is a quick and easy way. We do not have to type anything.
We can just say that we are at work and cannot reply, for example. The current status will change to "At work". Anyone who comes to look at our WhatsApp page will see the status. He will see that we are at work in this example and will probably understand that we cannot talk at that moment. There are other examples when we cannot talk. For example, "At the movies" or "Battery about to die". These statuses just allow other people to know some more information about our current actions.
This concludes the tutorial on how to select a new status in WhatsApp on the HTC One M8.
