WhatsApp Write Text bold, italic or crossed – solved

A new feature was added to one of the last WhatsApp updates. Now, text can be written using the following formatting: bold, italic or crossed. But this formatting cannot be activated as in Word via a button, but only with special code.

We show how this works exactly in WhatsApp:

Write text "bold" in WhatsApp:

To do this, you have to set the bold word or text section at the beginning and end of a star.

  • Example: * WhatsApp Text in bold *

Write text "italic" in WhatsApp:

For italic text in WhatsApp, start the word with an underline at the beginning and at the end of the word.

  • Example: _WhatsApp text in italic_

Write crossed text in WhatsApp:

To write crossed text in WhatsApp, place a tilde at the beginning and at the end of the word or text.

  • Example: ~ WhatsApp Text crossed ~

You now know how to make formatting in the text in WhatsApp. This works with Android smartphones, as well as with iPhones and tablets with iOS operating system.

Have fun with this useful feature.
