Step 7. Using the FixedSys font

By using three apostrophes ``` (pointing down from left to right) before and after the message, you can unlock a secret font similar to the one used in Command Prompt and Terminal.

  • For example, ```Computers will conquer humanity``` becomes

    Computers will conquer humanity

    when it is sent.
  • On an iPhone, you must press the 123 button on the keyboard and hold the apostrophe ' key, then choose the left-most option from the drop-down menu that appears.

Tips

  • iPhone users can also tap and hold text to get a pop-up menu, then tap Select everything in that menu to select all text and tap B, I, or YOU in the next menu to make text bold, italic, or underlined. This is also possible for Android users, but then you have to tap and hold text to select all, then tap in the top right corner and choose an option (e.g., B for fat).

Warnings

  • Only works for the text between the formatting symbols.
  • There is no option to permanently format text in WhatsApp.
