Bold Text in WhatsApp

Using bold text in WhatsApp is a powerful way to emphasize important sections of your messages or to make your text more engaging. This simple trick is surprisingly underutilized.

Follow this step-by-step guide to master it:

  1. Open WhatsApp
    Begin by opening the WhatsApp application on your device and navigate to the chat where you wish to compose your message.
  2. Compose Your Message
    Tap on the message input area to display the keyboard and start typing your intended text.
  3. Apply Asterisks
    To bolden a segment of your message, wrap the specific text with asterisks (*) without incorporating any spaces. For instance, to have "Hello World" with "World" in bold, you would type "Hello *World*". To bold an entire phrase, encase it within two asterisks.
    add asterisks before and after the text you want to bold
  4. Send Your Message
    Once you've placed asterisks around the text you want in bold, proceed to send the message as usual. WhatsApp will automatically transform the text between the asterisks into bold format.
    the text is bold

Text formatting in WhatsApp significantly enhances the expressiveness of your conversations and allows you to spotlight specific parts of your messages effectively.

Keep in mind, bolding can be seamlessly combined with other formatting styles such as italics, strikethrough, and monospace. Simply use underscores (_), tildes (~), and backticks (`) respectively, flanking the text you wish to modify.
