Formatting your messages

WhatsApp allows you to format selected text inside your messages.

Italic

To italicize your message, place an underscore on both sides of the text, like so:

_text_

Bold

To bold your message, place an asterisk on both sides of the text, like so:

*text*

Strikethrough

To strikethrough your message, place a tilde on both sides of the text, like so:

~text~

Monospace

To monospace your message, place three backticks on both sides of the text, like so:

```text```

Alternatively, on Android, you can tap and hold the text you're typing > More > and choose among bold, italic, strikethrough and monospace.

Note: There is no option to disable this feature.
