How To Use WhatsApp Bold, Italics and Strikethrough New Features on iPhone, Android
Soon after WhatsApp announced that it introduced text formatting tools for Android beta, the features are now available for users running version 2.12.17 on iOS and version 2.12.535 for Android. A media report by Telegraph explains that once WhatsApp application is updated, you can add asterisks to either side of your text, e.g. *hello* to format your text into bold. To italicize, add underscores either side, e.g. _hello_ and to strike through text, add tildes either side, e.g. ~tilde~. One can also combine the new formats, such as _*bolditalics*_. For now this is not a feature per se but more like a temporary workaround. Moreover, it works cross platform, only if your friend has the above mentioned versions of WhatsApp installed on their smart phones.
Recently, WhatsApp also released an update which would display a progress percentage whenever an automatic local backup is in motion. However, the pop-up still blocks everything but it at least displays the percentage, so that one has a fair idea of how much time one will have to wait before the app is usable again. Another small change is that the phone number no longer shows up front and centre in the new Settings screen. The new profile section will only show the photo, name, and status, but not the phone number.
Along with this change, some new improvements have been made to the WhatsApp document file sharing feature too. One can now share a document through Google Drive. Users can select a PDF, Word file or PowerPoint presentation file from Google Drive. All the files will be automatically converted by the application to PDF format before being sent to other users. These new features certainly add a new zing to WhatsApp usage.
