Messenger supports text formatting. You will be able to send text in bold, italic, strikethrough. Here's how to do it.

How to make bold text on Messenger

To make the text bold, type an asterisk (*) before and after the text and press enter. Bold text is often used to give more emphasis to important phrases and keywords.

*Hello*

How to make italic text on Messenger

To make the text italic, type an underscore (_) before and after the text. Like bold font, italics are often used to draw attention to a certain detail. Most commonly, they are used to highlight names, foreign words, or when quoting dialogues.



_Hello_

How to make strikethrough on Messenger

If you want to draw a line above your text on Messenger, you can use strikethrough formatting. To do this, type a tilde (~) before and after the text.

Strikethrough text is typically used to indicate text that is no longer valid or text that needs to be removed from a draft.

~ hello ~

How to make monospaced text on Messenger

To create monospaced text, type (`) before and after the text. This is different from a regular apostrophe and if you have an American keyboard you will find it on the same key as a tilde (~).

Most of the text you will see online will have proportional spacing, where each character only takes up the width it needs. Monospace is where each character takes up the same amount of space.



`hello`
