WhatsApp have snuck in an update. And it’s about to completely change your messaging game.
Yup, the social media app now has the function to add bold, italic or even strikethrough to your messages. Because, it seems, everything that’s old is shiny and new again.
We’ve all worked the emoji into our everyday language. But thanks to this new update, good old fashioned words can now be just as expressive.

The update should download automatically when you’re connected to WiFi, and is available now for those using version 2.12.17 on iOS and version 2.12.535 for Android.
So, how does it work?
1. To make your text bold, simply add asterisks to either side of your text, like *this*
2. To italicise, it’s all about the underscores, like _this_
3. To strikethrough text, put some tildes either side, like ~this~
Pretty nifty, huh?
