How to Write Bold, Strikethrough, Monospace, and Italic on WhatsApp

I use Windows 11 PC, Google Pixel 4a (Android 12), and iPhone X. Let’s start.

Note: You can apply over one format (except monospace) to the text. For example, you can use bold and italic to the exact text.

Write Bold, Italic, Strikethrough, and Monospace on WhatsApp (Android Phone)

Here are the steps:

Open the WhatsApp app and hit the chat you prefer. Type the text and select the text you want to format.

You’ll see the “Bold” and “Italic” options. Tap the former to make your text bold and the latter to make your text italic.

If you prefer strikethrough or monospace, tap the three vertical dots, and see the “Strikethrough” and “Monospace” options. Tap the one you like.

You can now see the formatting in the text. Don’t worry about the “special characters” around the text. They won’t be there in the message you sent.

You can also do this task in another way. Please refer below (WhatsApp Web) for that.
