    How to write bold text in WhatsApp on Android


    To start typing bold on WhatsApp, locate the chat of the person you want to send the message to and start typing the text of the message. Once you have finished typing and, before sending the message, press and hold your finger on the message. Choose if you want to format it all by highlighting it ( Select all button ) otherwise tap the Select item to highlight only a part of the text.

    Once the text to be formatted is highlighted, you can apply italics by tapping the button with the three dots symbol located at the top right. Through a vertical menu you can select the bold, italic, Strikethrough and Monospaced elements.


    Then tap the bold element and it will format the text you selected. At this point you can send the message(airplane symbol at the bottom right) and see the result applied to the message.


    Of course, for the other types of formatting, namely italic, strikethrough and monospace, simply press the other items in the vertical menu.

    It is also possible to beautify the text of a message in WhatsApp by following some simple tricks. To write bold in WhatsApp with an alternative method you will simply have to type some commonly used symbols that will allow you to change the text of the message.

    So let's start with the bold. To write a bold message in WhatsApp, via an Android device, you will need to type the symbol before and after a word. Asterisk *. For example: * Hello from the author *.

    In addition to bold, you can also choose to write a text in italics. In this case, simply insert the word between the Hyphen symbol under _ . For example: _Hello from the author_.


    WhatsApp also allows you to write a word or text in strikethrough (to be clear: strikethrough); To do this, once again simply insert the word or phrase to write between the Tilde ~ symbol. For example: ~ Hello from the author ~


    But what is the tilde symbol, on the Android smartphone keyboard? Perfectly legitimate question for which I have the immediate answer for you. On your Android smartphone's default keyboard, you can find special characters by tapping a combination of buttons located at the bottom left. Tap the ? 123 symbol and then tap the =< symbol. The tilde symbol will be at the top left of the keyboard.

    WhatsApp formatting does not end there. You can also choose to use the cross-formatting options (combining bold and italics, for example). To do this, simply combine two or more symbols together. For example: * _Hello from the author_ *.

    WhatsApp surprises continue, because you have an additional tool available to customize the text of a WhatsApp message. The messaging app allows you to write a message with the Monospacefont.
    To write and send a message with the font I have indicated, you only need to insert the symbol in the word or phrase Superscript ' repeated three times in total. For example: ``Hello from the author``.

    If you are using an Android smartphone, you can find this special character on the keyboard by tapping a combination of buttons located at the bottom left. Tap the ? 123 symbol and then tap the =< symbol. The Superscript ' symbol will be at the top left, next to the Tildesymbol.


    How to write in bold on WhatsApp with iPhone


    As we have seen on Android, formatting text in WhatsApp can be done in two ways. The first method is to use formatting buttons, while the alternative method is to use special characters. I recommend you try the first method first, which I'll tell you about below.

    Enter the chat where you want to send the message and type the text to send. Before sending it, hold your finger on it and, in the menu that appears, tap the BIU items. This will display the buttons for bold, italic and strikethrough.

    By tapping the bold button for example, the text you highlight will be automatically formatted. You can do the same with italic and strikethrough; once you have sent the message, the formatting will be preserved.

    If you use WhatsApp through an iOS device, an iPhone or an iPad, for example, you can write bold in WhatsApp also using some commonly used symbols that will allow you to change the text of the message you want to send.

    Let's start with bold. To write a bold message in WhatsApp, via an iOS device, you will need to type the symbol before and after a word or phrase. Asterisk *. For example: * Hello from the author *.

    In addition to bold, you can also choose to write a sentence in italics. In this case, simply insert the word between the Hyphen symbol under _. For example: _Hello from the author_.

    WhatsApp also allows you to write a word using strikethrough (to be clear: strikethrough); To do this, once again simply insert the word or phrase to be written between the Tilde ~ symbol. For example: ~ Hello from the author ~


    On the default keyboard of your iOS smartphone, look for the tilde symbol It's that simple. You can find the special character by tapping a combination of buttons located at the bottom left of the keyboard. Tap the 123 symbol and then tap the # + = symbol. The tilde symbol will be in the second row of the keyboard.

    WhatsApp formatting continues and you can also choose to use cross-formatting options (combining bold and italic, for example). To do this, simply combine two or more symbols together. For example: * _Hello from the author_ *.

    To customize the text of a WhatsApp message, you also have the FixedSys font available. To write and send a message with the FixedSys font, simply insert the symbol in the word or phrase Superscript' three times in total. For example: ``Hello from the author``.

    If you are using an iOS smartphone, you can find this special character on the keyboard. Tap on the 123 symbol and then hold the ' symbol. A small box of additional characters will appear. The Superscript symbol ' is the first one found in this box.
