The popular WhatsApp messenger is currently in the process of testing text markup within its messages. This development has been reported by WABetaInfo.
New Features in WhatsApp Beta 18.104.22.168 for Android
According to our source, this new feature has made its debut in the latest beta version of WhatsApp, specifically version 22.214.171.124 for Android. With this enhancement, users can now apply markup to their text, including formatting quotes as separate blocks and creating two types of lists: paragraphs or numbered lists.
Enhancing Convenience for WhatsApp Users
While primarily intended for WhatsApp channel owners and readers to enhance the readability of their messages, this feature will be accessible to all users. This means that soon, you’ll have the ability to make your messages more comprehensible and visually appealing, whether it’s a shopping list or plans for the day.
Comparison with Telegram
Interestingly, Telegram has yet to introduce markup options for lists and quotes. Currently, users must manually insert specific symbols for lists, and quotes can only be emphasized in italics.
The message markup feature is currently undergoing testing and is expected to be available to all users within the next few weeks, adds NIX Solutions. Stay tuned for this exciting addition to WhatsApp’s messaging capabilities.
