WhatsApp doesn't yet offer a native feature to change the colors of your text, but don't worry! We've got some tips on how to personalize your messages and make your conversations even more fun and original.
WhatsApp: the multi-faceted messaging app
The instant messaging giant, WhatsApp, allows its users to enjoy more lively and fun conversations thanks to GiFs, stickers, emojis and many other features. However, if you want to add a touch of originality to your chats, we reveal a simple trick to “color your texts” in your chats.
Although the application offers many options to make communications more interactive, there is not yet a built-in tool to change fonts. Don't panic, we'll show you how to add color to your texts in a quick and easy way.
Tips to personalize your WhatsApp messages
WhatsApp users can already apply effects like bold, italic, underline or strikethrough to their messages, but there is no option to customize text colors. To do this, you'll have to resort to third-party apps that offer various styles and shades for your writing.
Applications to change the color of your texts on WhatsApp
In the app stores, you can find options such as “Stylish Text”, which changes the appearance of WhatsApp text and offers a wide range of styles. Beware, this application requires accessibility permissions, so think carefully before using it.
If you decide to install it, all you have to do is open WhatsApp, write in a conversation, and then access the menu in the top right corner of the screen, represented by three dots. Then select the Stylish Text option and choose the text style you like best.
Another alternative for changing the color of your messages is the “BlueWords” application. You will need to download it, grant it accessibility permissions and set it as your default application. Once you've done this, a floating bubble will appear, similar to the one in Messenger, and will convert everything you write into blue letters as long as it remains open.
If you prefer not to download applications, you can opt for “Fancy Text Generator”, a website that transforms the text you type into different character styles. Although it doesn't offer a color palette, you can copy and paste the results into your WhatsApp conversations.
How to change the text style in WhatsApp without third-party apps?
If you prefer to avoid apps that can modify your WhatsApp messages, you should know that the platform already offers a few options to enhance certain words or phrases without resorting to external tools.
All you need to do is use a few simple codes:- For italics: add _- For bold: add *- For strikethrough: add ~- For monospace spacing: add ” `
Place these characters at the beginning and end of the word or phrase you want to emphasize. And voila, your messages will instantly look more stylish and original!
