WhatsApp users are just figuring out how to quickly change their font, after a viral video showed users how to quickly make their text bold.
Under her @mottomarketing account, Quinn revealed three easy ways to improve your messaging.
In the now-viral video, Quinn demonstrated for the first time how users can make their text bold.
“Put an asterisk on each side to make it bold,” he explained simply.
The creator then revealed that users can strikethrough their text, he explained: “Put a wavy line on each side for strikethrough.”
Finally, he explained that users can place underscores on both sides of the text to make it italic.
Since then, the video has gained more than three million views and has received more than 22,000 saves from potential WhatsApp users ready to try the trick.
However, users were divided on whether or not the hack was new, with some claiming it was “old news.”
TikToker Niall Quinn posted the texting hack on his account and revealed how to cross out your messages by placing a doodle before and after your text.
The TikToker also showed his followers how to quickly italicize text, which involves simply placing the underscore symbol before and after your text.
‘How is that a trick?’ one asked.
Another added: “You didn’t just figure this out, this has been a thing for years.”
However, others appreciated the shared method, saying the codes were “the best” and “brilliant.”
The content creator often uploads technological tricks and has even shared other WhatsApp tricks.
Sharing tips on how users can make sure the photos they send are of high quality, he said: “Go to settings, then select Storage & data, scroll down to Media Upload Quality, hit Best Quality.”
Quinn also revealed how to make your encrypted messages even more private by enabling a lock feature.
“Go to privacy, then Lock screen, turn on Require Face ID,” he explained.
Quinn’s efforts come as thousands of users were left in the dark last week, following a massive outage.
DownDetector, a site that monitors problems online, received a deluge of problem reports, but the outage ended in about an hour.
WhatsApp has an estimated monthly active user base of 2.7 billion people, but it’s unclear how many have been affected by the outage.
