How to change Font Style in Whatsapp : Shortcuts for Styles

There are lot of 3rd Party Apps for changing Fonts in Whatsapp Chat, but very rare users are aware that there are few shortcuts for including special styles on Whatsapp, like Bold, Italic and strikthrough.

First Lets have a look , How to change the Font Size in Whatsapp

  1. Open WhatsApp.
  2. Press Menu Button.
  3. Tap Settings > Chat settings > Font size.
  4. You can select from Small, Medium, or Large.

Now comes the Part where you can include Special styles. Please note : How to use the special characters : If you want to include style to a word / line. You need to need the special characters in start and end of that word / line.

1. Bold Fonts –
You can make your fonts in Bold by adding * before and after the word/sentence.
*bold text* will be shown as bold text
2. Italic Fonts -
You can make italic fonts by adding underscore before and after the word.
_italic word_ will be shown as italic word.
3. Strike through -
You can strike the text by adding ~ before and after the word.

The feature is enabled not by clicking a button, as on word processing apps. Instead it is hidden in the app, and turned on by including certain characters.

All of the features will work together, so that you can surround a word with all three of the characters and have each of the formatting options apply to a word.
