Messaging platforms are widely used by people today, with Meta's WhatsApp being one of the most popular choices.

WhatsApp has continuously added new features to its platform over the years, including some recent additions that offer significant benefits to users.

One of the latest features allows users to send numbered lists easily.

To use this, simply open the WhatsApp message box and type "1. " (with a space after the number).

WhatsApp will automatically format the text after "1" as "2", and so on, creating a numbered list.

Another useful feature is the ability to create bullet-point lists.

To do this, open the WhatsApp message box and type "- " (with a space after the hyphen).

WhatsApp will format the text in bullet points, making it convenient for users who prefer this format.

WhatsApp also introduced a feature for highlighting text.

To highlight text, type "> " (with a space after the greater-than symbol), and then type the message you want to highlight.

This feature can help draw attention to important points in a conversation.

These features are available on both smartphones and the web version of WhatsApp.

If you have not received the updates yet, you can download them from the Google Play Store or the App Store.

If you still do not see these features, do not worry; they will be available soon, or you can update WhatsApp from the official source.

Additionally, WhatsApp offers formatting options like bold and italic text.

To make text bold, simply add asterisks (*) at the beginning and end of the text.

For italic text, use underscores (_) instead. These formatting options allow users to add emphasis and convey messages uniquely to individuals or groups.
