ALL CHANGE: How to make your WhatsApp messages look a little different

Hey WhatsApp fans. Tired of the same old boring look on your messages? Rejoice because now you can add a new look to your messages.

WhatsApp has quietly rolled out a new font that can be applied easily to all your messages

The new font is called FixedSys, and you can get it by typing a secret character before and after your message.


Open WhatsApp and open a new or existing message thread.

Then, before you type your message simply add the characters ``` before and after your conversation.

For example ```Here's to my new font FixedSys!```



ALL CHANGE: This character will change the font on your WhatsApp messages

Once the message has been sent, the secret characters disappear leaving your message with its new look.

This isn't the first time WhatsApp has included a way of making your messages look a little more exciting.

WhatsApp now includes some nifty new formatting options which allows users to add bold, italics and strikethrough in their text messages.


BOLD: Add an asterisk (*) before and after the specific words or phrases you want to embolden e.g. *hello*

ITALICS Add an underscore (_) before and after your chosen words or phrases e.g. _hello_

• STRIKETHROUGH Add a tilde (~) before and after the words or phrases you want to strike a line through e.g. ~hello~

Before you get too excited about sending a message with a fancy new font it doesn't work on the iPhone.

The Apple keyboard doesn't include the character needed to change the font so only Android smartphone users have this option.

However, the font change does work on the desktop and web version of the app.
