Whatsapp Tips And Tricks… WhatsApp continues to improve its application, as we saw yesterday. The latest beta version of WhatsApp includes lots of interesting and highly requested additions such as quick replies, multiple selection and more customization options with new solid colors to use in the background conversations.
However, the most curious novelty of the latest WhatsApp beta is in the chat itself: the compatibility with the simple format of the text. That is, the support for writing in italics, bold and crossed out.
You have heard correctly, very soon your WhatsApp messages will stop being boring plain text to accept a minimum format. In fact, you can start using it, although only people with the WhatsApp beta will be able to see the result.
Format Your Text Like This:
So, the next time you want to send a message in which you want to emphasize something especially, you have the following resources at your disposal. All of them are based on wrapping the text you want to highlight in a special character.
Bold: To write in bold, wrap the text you want to highlight with asterisks. For example * text * becomes text.
Italic: To write in italics, wrap the text you want to highlight with underscores. For example text becomes text.
Strikethrough: To cross out a text, wrap the text you want to highlight with streaks. For example ~ text ~ becomes text.
Nothing prevents you from combining these codes to write one text at a time in italics, bold and crossed out, although you will probably go crazy along the way. WhatsApp does not include any button or method to make it easier to highlight specific text, so you must do everything manually.
If you want to start practicing, get the latest beta version of WhatsApp, registering as a tester in Google Play and wait for the update to be sent to you. The minimum version of WhatsApp that includes this function (next to the others we talked about yesterday) is 2.12.561
