WhatsApp supports simple text formatting (bold, italic, strikethrough)

You can format your chat message with bold, italic and strikethrough in WhatsApp.

  • To bold , surround the text with ‘*’.
  • To italic, surround the text with ‘_’.
  • To strikethrough, surround the text with ‘~’.

To example if you enter the text “Wanna watch *Deadpool* this _Saturday_?”, WhatsApp will format the message to “Wanna watch Deadpool this Saturday?”.
