Format text in Hangouts with these Keyboard shortcuts

Do you use Google’s Hangouts? If yes, I have something good for you. I am not sure if you already know not. Previously, Google’s GTalk and Gmail chat had option to format the text to make it bold, italic and underline. Now, those trick do not work. But Hangouts still lets you format the text. See the snapshot below.

For Android users, Google’s Hangouts is an important messaging service. Although we use WhatsApp more than Hangouts, we still use Hangouts to talk to those people with whom we do not want to share our phone numbers. And Hangouts is more popular for its video calling service.
