We have to now admit that whatsapp is taking all the moves to stay alive and is going to become a part of our lives in communicating with friends and family. The facebook owned company is releasing more and more interesting updates for whatsapp to make sure users are engaged in the app. Millions of users have made whatsapp part of their communication means.
The latest update as of today is, the popular messaging application whatsapp has introduced formatting features which lets users use rich text in their conversations. You can apply Bold, Italic and Strikethrough formats to a string of text.
How To Use Bold, Italic and Strikethrough Feature on Whatsapp :
– To make a word bold in your conversation, just add an asterisk (*) before and after the word. For example, if you want to make the word UPDATE as bold in the below sentence, then use it as follows :
whatsapp got an *update* !
– To make a word italic in your conversation, just add underscore ( _ ) on either sides of the word. For example, if you want to make the word GREAT as italic in the below sentence, then use it as follows :
whatsapp is _great_ !
– To strikethrough a word in your conversation, then just add a tilde (~) on either sides of the word. For example, if you want to strikethrough the word DIDN’T in the below sentence, then use it as follows :
I ~didn’t~ mean it.
– You can also use a combination of these symbols by adding them before and after a word. For example see the below text :
_*This*_ is an ~*Example*~
This hidden feature is not known to many, as whatsapp has not added any option to format a word/phrase from its user interface. You have to use the symbols. It would be very helpful and great if there is any button to make the word bold, italic or strikethrough. Or whatsapp can let users to make a text formatted by selection the text and applying these options.
