WhatsApp Gets a New Font-Here is How to Use It

A new font has been introduced in WhatsApp beta for both iOS and Android versions.

The new font is similar to FixedSys font in windows and as of now, that is the only available font. It is available in WhatsApp beta v 2.16.179. Using this font may sound difficult and tiresome for some users to use it frequently. To use this font, first you have to download the beta version (v 2.16.179) applicable for your phone (iOS or Android). To use this font, you need to put the text between three backquote (” ` ”) symbols before and after the text. For example, to type Livetricks in new font, you have to write “`Livetricks“`. This will change the font to FixedSys.

After its acquistion to facebook, WhatsApp added a lot of new features, which includes end to end encryption and text formatting. There are reports of WhatsApp soon rolling out certain new features including gif support and ability to share music for iOS users. Reportedly sharing music on iOS will be available only to the users with paid subscriber of Apple Music.
