How to change your WhatsApp font and confuse your mates with this secret trick
Want to blow your friends’ minds with wacky WhatsApp messages? Check out these simple tricks
WHATSAPP is full of secrets – and we’ve uncovered a hidden feature that lets you change how your messages look.
It’s possible to make your WhatsApp texts bold or italics, add a strikethrough effect – and even change the font.
How to change WhatsApp font
It’s also possible to change your messages into a secret monospace font.
A monospaced font is one where every letter and character occupies exactly the same amount of horizontal space.
First, you’ll need to locate the backtick icon, which looks like a reverse apostrophe. On your phone, just hold down on the apostrophe icon and it’ll show up.
Then, place three of those before and after your message, like this: “`text goes here“`
That will monospace your message, which will definitely confuse your friends.
How to make WhatsApp text bold
Bolding text is a great way to emphasise a word or phrase: bold.
It can also make a message stand out, which can be handy in group chats.
All you need to do is place an asterisk either side of the word or phrase you’re trying to embolden, like so: *text goes here*
That’ll make your message appear bold for you and for everyone else who sees it.
How to make WhatsApp text italics
Similarly, it’s also possible to make WhatsApp message italics, which is great for emphasis: italics.
It works in exactly the same was as the bold trick, but using different symbols.
You need to place an underscore on either side of the word or phrase you’re trying to edit, like this: _text goes here_
How to do a WhatsApp text strikethrough
The strikethrough features draws a line all the way through your text:
It’s usually used to signify that something is wrong, or should be ignored.
To get a strikethrough, place a tilde (that’s that squiggly line symbol) either side of your message, like this: ~text goes here~
But here’s one you can’t do…
Sadly, it’s impossible to underline text on WhatsApp: underline.
The company simply hasn’t added the feature, which means you’ll just have to settle for the other formatting methods instead.
