How to do italics, strikethrough, and bold text on WhatsApp
It’s more than likely you’re in at least a few WhatsApp group chats, and are swiping away notifications day and night from friends or family.
But, do you know how to jazz up those conversations with bold and italic text, and even get a strikethrough? There are some tricks to get your point across with a bit more flair than usual, and they’re super easy to do.

_hello_ will become hello.

*hello* will become hello.

~hello~ will become hello
