Whatsapp tricks keep growing and the messaging app keeps making it easier for users to apply these tricks.
Earlier, WhatsApp introduced bold, italic or strikethrough fonts, however, it was hard to remember how to generate these fonts. But now, WhatsApp has finally taken notice of this and offered an update in its 2.17.146 version, using Android MS customisable floating text toolbar to change different font types. This is an easier way to select fonts rather than manually generating them through keywords or complicated keyboard combinations.
All you have to do is select the text you want to change, tap the three dots icon in the toolbar and choose whether you want your text to be bold, italic, strikethrough or monospace.
Earlier, users had to add (*) to the beginning and end of the word to bold the text. Similarly, users could italicise text by adding (_) to the beginning and the end and strike a word by adding (~).
WhatsApp just added cool features for iPhone users
Further, WhatsApp has also updated its emoji search option and now lets you find an emoji based on a word or few characters rather than looking for specific emojis in the emoji tab.
These updates have only come to the Beta versions of WhatsApp but you can expect WhatsApp to launch these tools globally once they update their messenger. iOS users may have to wait a little longer but Android users can get their hands on the beta versions through Google's Play store.
