THERE are some clever WhatsApp codes you can enter to unlock special font tricks.
One of them even unlocks a new font style – and it’s extremely easy to use.
How to change WhatsApp font
It is also possible to change your WhatsApp messages to secret monospace font.
A fixed-spaced font is a font where each letter and character occupies exactly the same amount of horizontal space.
First you need to find the backtick symbol, which looks like a backtick apostrophe. On your phone, just press and hold the apostrophe icon and it will appear.
Then place three of them before and after your message, like this: “`text goes here“`
This will monospace your message, which will definitely confuse your friends.
How to make WhatsApp text bold
Bold text is a great way to emphasize a word or phrase: bold.
It can also highlight a message, which can come in handy in group chats.
All you have to do is place an asterisk on either side of the word or phrase you want to encourage, like this: *text goes here*
This bolds your message for you and anyone else who sees it.
How to make WhatsApp text italic
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_
How to strikethrough a WhatsApp text
The strikethrough function draws a line through your text:
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~
But here’s one you can’t do…
Unfortunately, it is impossible to underline text on WhatsApp: underline.
The app just didn’t add the feature, meaning you’ll have to settle for the other formatting methods instead.
