How to Change WhatsApp Font Style on Android

Millions of people use WhatsApp daily to chat with their family and friends. But some people want to change the WhatsApp font style to send messages to their friends in a different font type from the normal font.

If you are a person in this category then this guide is for you. This guide explains how to change the WhatsApp font style on an Android phone.

How to Change Font Style on WhatsApp Using Android Phone

You can change the WhatsApp font style on your Android phone in 2 different methods.

Here are both methods:

Method #1: Changing WhatsApp Font Style Without a Third-party App

In this method, you have to remember the keyboard shortcuts. Keyboard shortcuts turn normal text into bold, italic, strikethrough, or monospace.

Here’s how to use keyword shortcuts or codes to format text on WhatsApp:

  1. Bold: If you want to send a message to someone by making the text bold, put an asterisk on either side of the text.
    • For example, if I send “Hi” to my friend, I’ll type *Hi*
  2. Italic: If you want to send a message to someone by making the text italic, put underscores on either side of the text.
    • For example, if I send “Hi” to my friend, I’ll type _Hi_
  3. Strikethrough: If you want to send a message to someone with a text strikethrough, put a tilde on either side of the text.
    • For example, if I send “Hi” to my friend, I’ll type ~Hi~
  4. Monospace: If you want to send a message to someone with a monospace font, put three backticks on either side of the text.
    • For example, if I send “Hi” to my friend, I’ll type “`Hi“`

Method #2: Changing WhatsApp Font Style With a Third-party App

There are many third-party apps in the Google Play Store to send a message to someone by stylizing the text. Some popular apps like “Font Keyboard” and “Stylish Text.”

In this guide, I have used the Font Keyword app. Here are the step-by-step instructions to send a message in a fancy font:

Install the Font Keyboard app from the Google Play Store. And after installed, open it.

Tap on the “Next” button and enter your birthday and tap on the “Get Started” button. I recommend you enter a fake birthday.

Tap the “1. ENABLE FONTS KEYWORDS” button.

Turn on the toggle switch right next to “Fonts” and tap “OK” in the popup that appears. After tapping on OK, again tap on “OK” in the popup that appears.

Take a step back and tap the “2. SWITCH TO FONTS” button.

Choose “Fonts” in the popup that appears.

Tap “OK” in the upper-right corner.

Now you have enabled Font Keyboard on your mobile device and switched to Font Keyboard. To send a message to someone in a fancy font using “Font Keyboard”, follow the steps below:

Open the WhatsApp Messenger app on your Android phone.

Open the conversation and tap the message box at the bottom.

Now you can see the font keyboard. Scroll the top tab from right to left and select the font of your choice.
Type a message and tap on the paper airplane icon to send it.

So that’s how you can change the WhatsApp font style on your Android phone.
