WhatsApp is popular messaging website which lets you chat with your friends. For past few months, WhatsApp is quite active in pushing new updates with interesting features. Few days back, it rolled out chat formatting. So, users can format texts as bold, italic and strikethrough. 

This feature was initially tested in beta but now finally available for all users. I tested this on iOS and Android mobile apps and it is working fine. Few reports suggested that the feature is also working on WhatsApp for web. But I couldn’t get this on Whatsapp for web. You can try text formating on mobile apps.

How To Format Texts As Bold, Italic, Strikethrough On WhatsApp

To format text, you need to use the format given below:

  • For bold: Add an asterisk (*) before and after the specifics words : e.g. *hello*
  • For italics: Add an underscore (_) before and after the specifics words: e.g. _hello_
  • For strikethrough: Add a tilde (~) before and after the specifics words: e.g. ~hello~

You can combine these options to use bold italic, bold strikethrough, and italic strikethrough. See the formats given below.

  • For bold Italics: Add an asterisk (*_) before and after the specifics words : e.g. *_hello_*
  • For italics strikethrough: Add an underscore (_~) before and after the specifics words: e.g. _~hello~_
  • For strikethrough bold: Add a tilde (~*) before and after the specifics words: e.g. ~*hello*~

I hope, you can now easily format text. If you cannot see formatted text, you need to update your WhatsApp app. Official updates are now available in respective app srores.
