Formatting text in WhatsApp, i.e. writing it in bold, italic and strikethrough, is not that difficult. In this little guide I will show you how to format your short messages. I tested this with the WhatsApp app on iOS on the iPhone X. It should work similarly on the Android smartphone;)

I think bold or italic text in particular is probably used by some to emphasize certain words or parts of sentences in WhatsApp messages. How do you use the formatting options? Which statements do you particularly emphasize; and how do you go about it? Feel free to leave a comment about your usage experience with the text options in the app;)
