WhatsApp is probably the most common online messaging. Almost every person is using WhatsApp all over the world. WhatsApp is mostly famous because of its simplicity and ease of usage. Its interface is easy for even elders to use without any problem. Once it was bought by Facebook, it got many new features such as voice call and video call. With the various other messaging apps available on the internet, WhatsApp has been a little threatened, even if it doesn’t need to be.
No messaging app can replace WhatsApp that’s for sure. But WhatsApp has been bringing in new features to keep itself in the running just the same. Some of the commendable new features that WhatsApp has added include the blue ticks to show if your message has been read or the message recall feature which lets you roll back a message which has been mistakenly sent. Besides these obvious upgrades, WhatsApp has also made it possible to send your text in bold, italics and strikethrough.
But most people are not aware of these features and there are many who wonder how it is that they get messages from their friends and family in different text styles. This is because WhatsApp does not really advertise its features and upgrades. So, we are here to tell you how you can send your text messages in bold, italics and strikethrough.
Ways to type Bold, Italic and Strikethrough in WhatsApp:
To make your text bold on WhatsApp, what you need to do is add an asterisk, that is “*” at the beginning and end of the text which you want to make bold. The same has been shown below.
Then it’s a simple matter of sending your text and it will be in bold. This has been demonstrated below.
To send your text in Italics, you need to add an underscore, that is “_” at the beginning and end of the text which you want to show in Italics. The same has been shown below.
You just need to send your message after this and it will be in Italics. This has been demonstrated below.
To send your text as strikethrough, you need to add a tilde, that is “~” at the beginning and the end of the text you want to send as strikethrough. The same has been shown below.

These features work fine both on Android as well as iOS platforms. However, if you are facing any problems in using these features, you need to check the version of your WhatsApp as these features only work on the latest version.
