Italics, Strikethrough, and Bold text on WhatsApp

It’s more than likely you’re in at least a few WhatsApp group chats, and are swiping away notifications day and night from friends or family.

But, do you know how to jazz up those conversations with bold and italic text, and even get a strikethrough?

There are some tricks to get your point across with a bit more flair than usual, and they’re super easy to do.

Italics on WhatsApp

For italics in your message, simply put an underscore at either side of the text you’d like to change. For example:

hello will become hello.

Bold on WhatsApp

To make your messages bold add a an asterisk to either side of your chosen text. For example:

hello will become hello.

Strikethrough on WhatsApp

For a strikethrough on your text, use a tilde at either side that’s the little squiggly dash. For example:

~hello~ will become hello

There is another way, but it slightly differs depending if you’re using iOS and Android.

On Android, highlight and hold the text you want until you see the ‘more’ button appear. Click that and you can choose your new text effect.

On an iPhone, highlight and hold the text until ‘BIU’ comes up. Click that, choose your effect, and you’re sorted.

Hope you have learnt something new today?
