WhatsApp has introduced a treasure trove of new features that will help you jazz up your messages. 

This includes the ability to bold text, type in italics or use the strikethrough to show a change of mind.

We know what you're thinking, it just became a little easier to get your voice heard in a group chat. 

To utilise the update, all you need to do is remember a few commands on your keyboard. 

1. Bold

To write in bold text, all you have to do is add an asterisk to either side of the chosen word. For example *bold*

2. Italics

This formatting option also follows a similar rule. Simply insert an underscore before and after your desired sentence or word.  For example _Italics_

3. Strikethrough 

If you've sent your message too fast or want to show a change of mind,a  squiggly dash is your best bet. For example ~strikethrough~
