Change Text Font in WhatsApp

Have you ever think about changing the font in WhatsApp. You may have heard some messages in WhatsApp having another text font other than the default one. Isn't this interesting to be able to change text font in WhatsApp.

In this article, I am writing about the same "How to Change Text Font in WhatsApp".

Hey there, I am Madhusudan Somani and you are reading this article at MSS Articles, let's continue...

Supported Font and Formats in WhatsApp

Currently, WhatsApp supports these text fonts and formats:
  • Helvetica Neue (Default)
  • Italic
  • Bold
  • Strikethrough
  • Monospace

These are the formats and fonts which can be used in WhatsApp.


Isn't this looking this interesting to send a message like this?

The default font that is "Helvetica Neue". So we are using this font by default.
You can change your font style by these manual formatting methods:

Italic

To use the font as Italic. Place the word within two underscores. It means, place an underscore at the beginning of the word and another one at the end.
For example:
_Hello There_

This will make the message "Hello There" italic.
It will look in WhatsApp like this:
Hello There

Bold

To make your message bold. Place your message within two Asterisks (*). It means, place an asterisk at the beginning of the message and another at the end.
For example:
*Hello There*

This will make the message "Hello There" bold.
It will look in WhatsApp like this:
Hello There

Strikethrough

To make your message looks like cancelled or having a horizontal line from the centre of the word, you have to use StrikeThrough format.

To use that format place your message between two Tildes (~). It means, place one tilde at the beginning and another one at the end of the word.
For example:
~Hello There~

This will make the message "Hello There" in strikethrough format.
It will look in WhatsApp like this:
Hello There

Monospace

To use Monospace as the font of your text in WhatsApp, then place your message within Backticks (```). Three backticks at the beginning and three at the end.
For example:
```Hello There```

(Note: These are not Inverted Comma. These are Backticks (```) which may look like inverted commas. In desktop or laptop keyboard, they are generally above the "Tab" button. But their position may vary in mobile devices depends on which keyboard you are using)

This will make the message "Hello There" in Monospaced form.
It will look in WhatsApp like this:
Hello There

You can also use a combination of these for formatting your message. For example, you can use Bold and Italic font styles together, in this condition, the message will be bold as well as italic.

Alternatively

If you have updated your WhatsApp, then

for Android:
You can change font style by, selecting text > click on three dots, and choose any font style

for iOS:
You can change font style by, selecting text > click on BIU, and choose any font style.

This option is available in the latest version of WhatsApp, and also not convenient. So I would prefer to go for manual formatting.

Conclusion

So now you change the font in your WhatsApp messages. You can amaze your friends by sending the message in different style. If you have any problem while changing the font in WhatsApp, let me know in the comments below and I will try to solve that.

The method may look a little bit annoying, but currently, only this method is supported by WhatsApp.
