Change your WhatsApp font

Just open yours Whatsapp On iPhone, enter a chat and type a message.

Then highlight a word (or phrase, or an entire message) and hold your finger.

A pop-up menu will appear: Now tap on the BIU icon.

This allows you to change the style of your font – potentially confusing friends.

Of course, that’s not the only way to achieve this effect.

To make text bold, all you have to do is place an asterisk on either side of the word or phrase you want to make bold, like this: *text goes here*

Likewise, it is also possible to italicize WhatsApp messages, which is great for emphasis: italics.

It works the same as the fat trick but with different symbols.

You must put an underscore on both sides of the word or phrase you want to edit, like this: _text goes here_

The strikethrough function draws a line through your text: crossed out.

It is usually used to indicate that something is wrong or should be ignored.

To get a strikethrough, place a tilde (that’s the squiggly line symbol) on either side of your message, like this: ~text goes here~

Save important texts

Just open WhatsApp and then go to a chat.

Holding your finger on a specific message gives you the option to star it.

Then go into your settings and look for starred messages.

All your favorite messages are saved there.

It’s an easy way to keep track of important messages – maybe an address, directions, or even a clever WhatsApp trick.

Pin your top chats

Another hack to learn is how to pin chats.

This is an easy way to prioritize your favorite people on WhatsApp.

When you have a busy WhatsApp, sometimes loved ones can get buried under groups and work chats.

But it’s actually possible to pin multiple chats so they stay at the top of your main conversations feed.

Go to your chat list, then swipe right on a conversation.

You can then tap Pin and that particular chat will get stuck at the top of the feed.
