Many instant messaging platforms are now starting to incorporate code transmission features into WhatsApp. It appears that Android users may soon be able to utilize the text formatting feature that Meta added to WhatsApp for iOS. WABetaInfo reported that the Android 22.214.171.124 WhatsApp beta includes text formatting. When the functionality first appeared in the WhatsApp beta for iOS version 126.96.36.199, it mostly catered to Apple customers, leaving Android device owners noticeably left out.
You may use three tools to format the text of your messages with this function. Use the code block to draw attention to a particular section of your text and the quote block to address a specific passage from an earlier message. One way to draw attention to a particular section of a message is by using quote blocks. You may choose it by entering > and then your response. You can start bulleted lists with asterisks or dashes, and numbered lists with digits. WhatsApp is not the only IM app that has lately included text formatting features.
Notably, Signal debuted comparable functionality in 2023, but with less of an emphasis on creating lists and maintaining code. Version 188.8.131.52 of WhatsApp for Android and version 184.108.40.206 of WhatsApp for iOS both currently have these functionalities available. It can be expected to be made available to the public in the upcoming weeks, but it is still undergoing beta testing. While WhatsApp is introducing this new functionality, Meta has already been spotted experimenting with more sophisticated text formatting choices.
At the time, WhatsApp used latent code to identify code block and quotation block support; however, it was unclear if Meta intended to roll out lists on WhatsApp as well. With the latest beta version, WhatsApp is now granting certain beta testers access to all features, including lists. This might potentially indicate a broader beta channel release in the upcoming weeks.
