How to Type Bold, Italics and Strikethrough Text to WhatsApp Messages
I wouldn’t be wrong if I say that you are one of the billion people using WhatsApp every day. It has been a primary mode of communication for almost everyone. The impressive thing about the WhatsApp is that the developers keep updating it with new features every now and then.
In case you aren’t aware, WhatsApp has recently included few more most needed features to its iPhone or Android app. You can now add Bold, Italics, and Strikethrough text messaged from your phone using WhatsApp. Like all other features of the app, this too is quite simple to use. Let me take you on a tour and guide how you can use it.
Now to add Bold formatting, just add (asterisk) “*” before and after the text. For example, *Hola!*. Hit the Send button, and WhatsApp will automatically make it bold.
In order to type in Italics, you’ll need to add (underscore) “_” before and after the text. Same like Bold formatting, WhatsApp will now convert the text to Italics.
The last and the final is Strikethrough. In order to use that, you’ll need to add (tilde) “~” before and after the text.
