WhatsApp Font Tips and Tricks on Mobile
You can make a different types of fonts like bold, italic, and colorful texts using some simple tricks on your phone. Read on to know more about these tips and tricks.
1. Bold Text
WhatsApp now offers a feature to make your texts bold. You can make any text bold in your chat when you want to highlight something.
Here’s how to make bold text:
You can add an asterisk (*) before and after the text that you want to make bold.

2. Italic Text
Now if you want to write in italic text you can do that easily. Just like bold, italic is also useful when something is being emphasized.
To make some text italic, you will need to add underscore (_) before and after the text. For example, in the above message, I typed _Hi_ to make it italic.
3. Change Font
WhatsApp also supports Monospace font which you can check by long-tapping on any text in your chat box. However, there is no in-built setting in WhatsApp to change the font for all chats. So you’ll need to change it individually for each text.
If you want to change the font, you can either tap and hold on the text and then swipe right from the options to choose monospace otherwise put the text in between three backticks (“`).
4. Strike through
The effect of striking out text represents correction or iteration in a sentence or any text. You can also add a strike through your text by simply tapping and choosing the option.
Or, you can also add it to your message by placing a ~ on both sides of the text. Just like you can see in the above text.
5. Change Font Size
Apart from changing the styles, you can also change the default font size of WhatsApp if it’s too small or too large for you. Unlike other apps, WhatsApp depends on device fonts only and offers a built-in setting to change the font size.
