Currently, you can reply to an entire message as a quote.

While useful, some friends can’t help but delve deep into past texts to emphasize something you’ve said before — likely to contradict you.

WhatsApp owner Meta is now developing a more detailed quote tool.

This allows everyone to highlight a specific part of the text WABetaInfo.

It’s one of three new formatting options to be introduced in the future.

Another major innovation is that you can finally create bullet points.

Change WhatsApp fonts

One thing you can already do on WhatsApp is customize the look of the text.

There are three options available: Bold, Italic, and Strikethrough.

This is very easy to do by inserting a special character at the beginning and end of the text to be formatted.

  • Bold – Asterisk *
  • Italics – underscore _
  • Crossed out – tilde ~
