WhatsApp is the most used messaging app in many countries. Since its launch in 2009, it has not stopped being useful to users.

There are many customization possibilities and in each of them the change will appear when the message is sent. These are the options available.
- wide line: To type a message in bold, simply add an asterisk “*” at the beginning and end of the text.
- Diagonal: The principle is the same with bold, but this option requires the use of an underscore “_”.
- Strikethrough: For text to appear crossed out, the ‘~’ symbol must be added at the front and end of each message.
- change character: To change the WhatsApp font and choose the monospace variant, which is similar to that of typewriters, three open accents must be placed: “” “. As in the previous cases, they must be at the beginning and end of each message.
