WhatsApp’s Latest Text Formatting Options

The latest addition of text formatting options will help users save time and improve the effectiveness of communications. The additional text formatting options will co-exist alongside the bold, italic, strikethrough, and monospace formatting options.

WhatsApp confirms that the new feature will be available to all Android, iOS, Web, and Mac desktop users. The new text formatting options can also be accessed by all channel admins to share posts in their respective channels. Here are the steps and use of the latest text formatting options introduced by WhatsApp.

Bulleted Lists

The bulleted list format will help the users organise the steps in a detailed way. The format can also be used to highlight the key points in a message. The bulleted point format can be accessed by typing – symbol, followed by a space.

Numbered Lists

The numbered lists format also serves a purpose similar to the bulleted lists. The format can also be used to present a specific order of steps or to present a recap of events. To access the format, type 1 or 2 digits followed by a period and one space.

Block Quote

The block quote format helps the user highlight key text, which helps it stand apart from the rest of the text and catch the attention of the reader. The user can highlight the key text by typing the > symbol followed by a space.

Inline Code

The inline code is another way to highlight information within a sentence. The feature can be accessed by adding the ` symbol before and after the required text.

These new formatting options are now available and in case you haven’t got them yet, just update the WhatsApp app to go about.
