WHATSAPP is packed with tips and tricks – including some clever font hacks.
If you want to confuse your mates, there’s an easy way to do it.
How to change WhatsApp font
Can be changed WhatsApp message into a secret monospace font.
A monospaced font is a font where every letter and character takes up exactly the same amount of space horizontally.
First, you’ll need to identify the inverted stick figure, which looks like an inverted apostrophe. On your phone, just hold down on the apostrophe icon and it will show up.
Then put three of them before and after your message, like this: “text here”
That will monospace your messages, which is sure to confuse your friends.
How to bold WhatsApp text
Bold text is a great way to emphasize a word or phrase: bold.
It can also make a message stand out, which can be useful in group chats.
All you need to do is put an asterisk on either side of the word or phrase you’re trying to highlight, like this: *text here*
That will make your message visible to you and to others who see it.
How to make WhatsApp text italic
Similarly, it is also possible to skew WhatsApp messages, which is good for emphasis: italics.
It works exactly like the bold trick, but uses different symbols.
You need to put underscores on either side of the word or phrase you’re trying to edit, like this: _text going here_
How to do WhatsApp text strikethrough
Dash features draw a line through your text:
It is often used to denote that something is wrong or needs to be ignored.

But here’s one thing you can’t do…
Sadly it’s not possible to underline text on WhatsApp:underline.
