Steps to doing it

  • You will of course first have to open the IMO app on your device. Then log into your account so you could continue with these steps.
  • When the new screen loads and you are able to see all of the people that you have chatted with until now, look for the + button on your screen, It is usually located in the top right corner of your phone’s screen. You will be able to add new contacts this way from your phone contact list. But, if you want to add some other person that is not in your contact list, you will have to click on the three lines button in the top left corner of your home screen. This is going to show a few new options to you. You should click on the last option in that menu, the Find friends option.
  • When a new window shows up on your screen you will be able to add people by their phone number. So type in the phone number of the person that you want to add to your contacts and click on Next.
  • You will see that person’s profile now, you are able to change their name or write out their nickname that is easily recognizable to you. When you are done with that simply click on the Save button and you will be all done!

If you have some kind of problems while trying to add a contact

Here are some things you can try to do if the app won’t let you add new contacts to your account.

  • Make sure that you are connected to your Wi-Fi or that your mobile data is turned on. IMO is an app that only works If you have a stable internet connection, therefore you will not be able to add new contacts if you do not have internet access.
  • Log out of your IMO account, wait for a while and log back in and try to add some new contact to see if the issue is gone.
  • Restart your phone. You can even turn it off for a while and turn it back on after some time.
  • Consider uninstalling the app, turning your phone off, turning it back on, and installing the app again.
  • If these previous steps did not help you, and you are still not able to add new contacts, you might want to try contacting the IMO’s staff team for more information and some other possible solutions to your problem, they will for sure help you and give your further directions!
