Creator Niall Quinn, who wrote the post, said the hack was one that many “never knew existed.”

In the clip, Quinn demonstrated on-screen how to change the fonts to make them bold, italic, or underlined.

“Add an asterisk on either side to make it bold,” he began.

He then explains that they can “put a squiggly line on either side to strike through” and “use underscores to italicize.”

“Here we go.”

The video has received more than 73,000 likes and 1300 comments so far.

However, users were divided on whether the trick was already known or not.

“Why is this a hack?” one asked.

“You didn’t discover this, it’s been around for years,” added another.

Others were more appreciative, saying the codes were “the best,” and they were “grateful” for the video.

Quinn’s efforts come after users were urged to update their app on Friday after a critical keyboard bug was fixed.

The problem was that the app for Android crashed when configuring avatars, accessing the privacy panel, and adding text over images.
