To Everyone Who Didn't Know You Can Use Bold And Italics In WhatsApp

Warning: appsplaining ahead.

Posted on

Earlier this year, messaging app WhatsApp introduced the ability to write messages in bold, italics, or with a strikethrough.

I've discovered italics on WhatsApp. My life is suddenly one of infinite richness.

And though many people have worked this out for themselves...

ME AND APP DISCOVERED THE BOLD ITALICS FONT ON WHATSAPP TODAY & WE KINDA FREAKED OUT AND WENT CRAZY LIKE KIDS OMG😂😋🙈

Unfortunately the changes caused some unforeseen and heartbreaking side effects. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Whatsapp has ruined shrug guy for everyone. Fuck italics, my man needs his shoulders.

RIP.

If you already knew all this, you're allowed to be smug right now, and you've probably spent the last few months lording your new-found powers over your friends.

I'm literally the only prsn on my contacts list that knows whatsapp now has bold, italics and strike thru. Been pissing people off all day 😈

As you watch them try and fail to join in.

That moment you figure out how to use bold and italics on whatsapp. Today was clearly a very fruitful/amusing day 😂

Where the once impossible has now become possible.

Bold and italics in Whatsapp is taking my sarcasm to God tier.

And the once creepy has now become really fucking creepy.

When you discover the italics/bold on whatsapp 👏🏼

So go forth and spread the word. Just hope the person you're telling doesn't already know.
