Getting Started Tips

New to Voxer and don't know what to do? Here are four tips to help you get to Voxing right away!
 

1. Find your friends by looking them up in the Voxer Directory by Email or Full Name - Connect with your friends already using Voxer! 
  • On an iPhone, go to your contacts list> select "Search for People" > type full name or email address into the search field. Make sure you type in the entire name/email address even if it says "Sorry we could not find that person." Then click on the name that appears and click "Add." Once you add the contact, they will appear in your address book! See "Get More Friends On Voxer" for your iPhone here
  • On an Android, tap the friends tab > tap the magnifying glass > enter your friend's full name or email address > select "Tap here to search for (your friend) on the Voxer network" > select their name and tap on the "+/Add" button. This will add them to your friends tab.  Find them in your friends tab > tap their profile picture > select "Vox."  You are now in a chat with your friend and can begin sending messages! See "Get More Friends on Voxer" for your Android here
  • On WP8, swipe to the right three times until you get to the "contacts" screen > Search contact by full name or email address > Select the user you wish to Vox with > Select Vox. 
   
*Note: if you are having trouble finding your friend because there are many people on the Voxer network with their name (ie. "John Smith" or "Jennifer Parker"), try searching by their e-mail address rather than by their full name.


2.  Add your phone number to your Voxer profile - 
this will allow the app to match you with friends in your address book!
  • To access your profile on your iPhone, go to My Profile  and click "Edit" in the upper right hand corner. Under Private Information, you will see your phone number. Enter your phone number. 
  • To access your profile on Android, go to your "Me" tab > tap the edit pen at the top of the screen > tap in blank phone number field further down the screen > enter phone number. 
  • To access your profile on WP8, swipe to the right until the "my profile" page > select edit pen at the bottom of the screen > enter phone number. 
*And don't worry, we won't share your number with anyone! Be sure to enter the correct digits into your profile, otherwise you may be matched with people you don't know!
