Delhi : New text formatting features are being tested on the Meta-owned messaging platform, giving you more options for how to show a certain text. Although the new features have been seen on WhatsApp's desktop version, users of Android and iOS may also find them useful. Here are some specifics.

Testing New Formatting Tools on WhatsApp

According to a report from WABetaInfo, WhatsApp just released a beta update for WhatsApp for Desktop that adds three new text formatting features. These complement the already available bold, italic, and underline settings. The first will be a "Code Block," which will make it simple to comprehend lines of code and be useful for coders communicating on WhatsApp. The Quote function will be the second tool.

This will make it easy for users to refer back to a previous message and maintain a conversation, which can be difficult when there are many messages. If you're asking why someone would need a Quote formatting tool when there is already a Quote function, you should know that the formatting tool will allow users to quote only a portion of a message rather than the entire message, as the current feature already handles.

The final application will make list-making simple for users, which will be useful for creating shopping or party lists or lists for larger groups. For a better understanding of the formatting below, see the screenshot. The whole public may eventually have access to these new formatting capabilities, which are presently only available to WhatsApp for Desktop beta testers. By giving users the option to decide how to format and convey a message, this can facilitate more effective and efficient dialogues.

The speed at which WhatsApp releases new features suggests that these new tools will be available soon. Stay tuned as we will keep you updated on the situation. The most often requested function, sending HD-quality photos, has now been added to the messaging app.
