WhatsApp had earlier rolled out an update to format the text in WhatsApp messages to the Android beta users and it is now rolling out the same to the stable users as well globally. The beta update allowed the users to add only bold and italics formatting and now the WhatsApp is rolling out the stable update with the bold, italics and text formatting. However, here in this post we are going to guide you on how to add bold, italics and Strikethrough text formatting to WhatsApp Messages.
How to add Bold, Italics and Strikethrough Text formatting to WhatsApp messages?
- To text-format a message, you will first have to download the latest version 2.12.535 of WhatsApp for Android and 2.12.17 on iOS. If you haven’t got the update yet, please be patient. It might take some time as the update has been downloaded globally.
- The next step involves typing the message within the necessary quotation marks.
For bold, you will have to type the text in between the asterisks. Eg: *bold* (bold)
For italics, you will have to type the text in between the underscores. Eg: _italics_ (italics)
For strikethrough, you will have to type the text in between the tildes. Eg: ~tilde~ (
That’s it. Following the steps mentioned will format your text according to your choice.
Text formatting in a way makes everyone a programmer as the text has to be placed within the asterisks or underscores or tildes which are much like the tags in HTML or CSS.
