Make a sentence or word bold

Making a sentence or word bold is a great way to emphasize certain parts of a message: bold.

It can also highlight a message, which can come in handy in group chats.

You can tap your smartphone keyboard to achieve the effect — or use this handy shortcut.

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: 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~

But here’s one you can’t do…

Unfortunately, it is impossible to underline text on WhatsApp: underline.

The company just didn’t add the feature, meaning you’ll have to settle for the other formatting methods instead.
