When using Share In-Room TV, you can see messages that staff, friends, and family have sent to your Share email address.
On the Home screen, you will see an indicator showing how many unread messages you have.
You can use the arrows on your Share remote to move down to the Messages area.
Use the arrows to select Read My Messages, then press OK on the remote. That will display your message list.
Use the arrows to select the message you want to read. You can keep pressing the down arrow on your remote in order to scroll to additional pages of messages. When you have the message that you want to read selected, press OK to view it.
When reading a message, an indicator at the top shows you if the message has any pictures or videos attached to it.
Use the down arrow button on the remote to scroll through the message and access the attachments. Press the OK button to play a video attachment.
If you would like to reply to a message, use the arrows on the remote to select Reply, then press OK.
Press OK to type your message.
On the keyboard screen, use the arrows to highlight the letters you want to type, then press OK to select them. When you are done, select Done Typing, then press OK to send your reply.
If you don't want to type, you can use the arrows to highlight Quick Text on the keyboard. The Quick Text option shows some pre-made text that you can select for your reply. After selecting your text, select Done Typing, then press OK to send your reply.
You can also use the arrows to select Place Phone Call. If your community has added your phone number to the Share system, then this tool will call you on the phone and let you record a voice message that will be sent back to the person who sent you the message.
Some users prefer to use an actual keyboard to type their messages. A wireless keyboard can be attached to your Share player using the USB port on the front of the player.
