WhatsApp Gains New Text Formatting Options in Latest Update

WhatsApp has added new text formatting options to the chat platform, enabling users to message each other everything from grocery lists to step-by-step instructions in mid-conversation.


Following Wednesday's update, WhatsApp users can now use bulleted and numbered lists, block quotes, and inline code to communicate more effectively.

The new formatting options join the existing bold, italic, strikethrough, and monospaced formats that have been available to WhatsApp users for a while now.

How to Use New WhatsApp Text Formatting Options


  • Bulleted list: Start a new line with a - (dash) symbol, followed by a space.

  • Numbered list: Start a new line with 1 or 2 digits, followed by a period and a space.

  • Block quote: Start a new line with the > symbol, followed by a space.

  • Inline code: Wrap any code or text you want to highlight using the ` (backtick) symbol.
