there is no need to have another separate program or enter a website. For this, there is a simple trick to change the letters or fonts of WhatsApp. You can achieve everything from the same messaging app just by performing these simple steps that we show you below. Basically, we can write our message in 5 types by using different fonts.

As is known, WhatsApp has launched a series of functions, mostly hidden, that many users are unaware of how to use them. This is the case of changing letters without the need to open external programs. Use these steps:

Type in a Bold📜Font in WhatsApp

One of them is the default font which we are using generally. So now we are going to know about the rest 4 types of fonts.

Sometimes you want to highlight a critical point or to focus on a specific word, so you are searching for the option “Bold”. This option is very interesting since it allows you to highlight something that you consider important so that the other person will pay more attention. To activate it you need to place an asterisk (*) before and after the word or phrase that you want to make bold.

If you want to write bold text, type an asterisk “ * ” at the beginning and end of the message.

EXAMPLE: *Hello!* becomes Hello

🔲Make the Text Italic on WhatsApp

This option allows that when writing an appointment via WhatsApp it can be seen more clearly. To activate this option you must place an underscore ( _ ) before and after the word or phrase that you want to be in italics.

For Italic text type an underscore “ _ “at the beginning and end of the message.

For Italic text, simply add underscore (_) in the beginning and the end of the text or word, you want to be italic.
  • EXAMPLE: _Hello!_ becomes Hello

To Italicizing a text to emphasize an important part. Wrap the text you want to highlight with underscores.

  • EXAMPLE: _text_ becomes text

Apply Monospace to your Messages😎

This option is used more for aesthetics or to focus on a specific text. To activate it, you must place inverted quotes (“`) before and after the word or text that we want to become monospaced.

For Consola’s text, type three backquotes “ “` “at the beginning and end of the message.

  • EXAMPLE: “`Hello!“` becomes Hello!

Apply Strikethrough❌ to any text

Sometimes you want to create a dramatic effect of striking out a text to represent a correction or iteration. That is possible by adding a strike through your message.

The strikethrough option is very useful if you want to correct something or show that something is not right, this option, like the others, will be activated including the accent (~) before and after the word or phrase that you want to strikeout.

EXAMPLE: ~Hello!~

~Hallo!~ becomes Hallo!

For Strikethrough text, type a tilde “ ~ “at the beginning and end of the message.

To add a line to your message, place a tilde (~) on both sides of the word(s). Let’s say you want to write Instagram is the best social network by cutting Facebook. You need to enter the text like this ~Facebook~ Instagram is the best social network. It will then look like this:

Can you change the color of your text in WhatsApp?

Yes, you can add links to your messages. If you have a customer and they would like to learn more about your product, you can add a link to your online store. Just copy the URL and paste it into your WhatsApp chat. The best way to do it is using WhatsApp for Business and WhatsApp on your computer. This way your responses will be much swifter. 

Change WhatsApp Font Size

Is the default font size of WhatsApp bothering you? Well, you can always change its size. Unlike other apps where the font size is limited to the device font, WhatsApp offers a native setting to change the text size.

To do so, follow the steps:

Step 1: Open WhatsApp on your Android device and tap the three-dot icon at the top right corner. Then select “Settings” from the menu.

Why would you want to use fonts?

As you can probably sense, fonts is a creative and fun way to express your opinion, get your message through more clearly, or simply just spice up your messages!

No matter what the message is or how many you are texting, these fonts and typing tricks can be the difference between a regular message, and a great, interesting and eye-catching message!

When that is said, there are some things and some situations, where you might want to re-think your use of these font tricks, before sending a message full of these cool and colorfull messages. ⚠️

Be aware of the situation!

Different font types and tricks are best used in the right situation and the right context. This means, that if you are writing a more “professional” message, that could be to a client or your doctor, you might want to avoid changing the color of your texts, and stick to the regular color.

Changing the color is more for the fun of it, which can seem less serious and professional, so this might be best used for friends and fun conversations.

Also, if you use bold text for a word or a phrase, that is not really ment to be put extra notice on, your message could be misunderstood or confusing. Bold text is great for highlighting stuff, so make sure you highlight the right facts! ✅

So remember to be aware of the situation and the context, and besides that, go have fun with these cool tips and tricks! 🎉
