We have as of now seen WhatsApp Messenger bringing various features to its application, a redesigned Settings page, from sharing of pdf files to showing end-to-end encryption notification. Well, now the Facebook-owned messaging application has received a new set of features as a part of the version 2.12.535 for Android. In the meanwhile, the organization has also rolled out an updated version of WhatsApp for iPhone, convey it to version v 2.12.16.  

Once again WhatsApp has announced some new features for Android. With this new update, the user can type the text in bold and italic. This feature comes in handy when someone wishes to type to highlight something important in a conversation.  All user have to do is to put the text that they have to see as bold *inside asterisks* while typing and the phrase user need to italicise _between underscores_. The recipients can only see the text in bold and italics if they are on the same app version.

The text formatting is not only limited to messages but has reached to notification alerts as well. Users with the new WhatsApp version will see the sender’s name in bold inside the notification dropdown. If the sender has sent texts in bold or italics then it will show in the same format in the notification tray. But both parties should be on the same app version number 2.12.535.
On February 19, 2014, WhatsApp was acquired by Facebook and is one of the most highly used instant messaging apps.



Recently WhatsApp started allowing user send and receive pdf files over chats. But Now with the latest version, it allows Android users send pdf files not only from the device storage but from Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive accounts as well.
