How to change WhatsApp font natively

The following tip can be used on both Android smartphones and iPhone. The feature is native to WhatsApp and does not require any extra apps to be installed. However, it is restricted to only four change options.



Negrito

To send content in bold, just insert an asterisk (*) at the beginning and another at the end of the sentence. Like for example * *. On Android, you can select the word and, in the menu that appears, choose Bold.

Italic

Italicized content is generated when the user includes the underscore symbol (_) at the beginning and end of the sentence. So, it would be __. On Android, you can select the word and, in the menu that appears, go in italics.

Strikethrough

The letter ̶t̶a̶c̶h̶a̶d̶a̶ is the one crossed out. To use the feature, just use the tilde symbol (~) before and after the content that will be sent. For example: ~ ~.

If you use Android and don't want to decorate symbols, just select the text, and go to the three dots icon to see more menu options. So, opt for strikethrough.

monospaced

The 𝚖𝚘𝚗𝚘𝚎𝚜𝚙𝚊𝚌̧𝚊𝚍𝚊 font features wider spacing between the letters, with a style that resembles that of typewriters. To use it, you need to include three back quotes (or backticks) before and after, as in "".

On Android, the option is also available by selecting content, tapping on the three dots icon and going to monospace.
