Whatsapp Messenger is the most popular instant messaging app in the market today. It offers multiple functionalities to users including the ability to create and talk in groups, host video calls, send media and enjoy end-to-end conversations across the platform.
Whatsapp started off as a simple free-to-use ‘Instant Messaging’ app, which soon rose to popularity and eventually ended up replacing the standard messaging app on our phones. Recently, Whatsapp also rolled our business-centric features, including a Whatsapp for business app, making the product a versatile and must-have app on all smartphones. Today, Whatsapp is the most downloaded messenger and is available as a free download on iOS, Android, and even PCs.
Almost everyone who has a smartphone today uses WhatsApp to communicate with friends, colleagues, and family members, and the messenger has evolved over the years, to include features that not only elevated the experience of its users but also stayed relevant and on top of the competition. The messenger was eventually bought by Facebook and was added to its suite of social media applications such as Facebook and Instagram.
Today, we are going to talk about yet another hidden text effect in Whatsapp, and that is the strike-through feature. This allows you to strike through the wrong points in your message and also gives an altered appearance to your message.
In this tutorial, we will show you how to strike through text on Whatsapp.
Step 1. Open the Whatsapp Messenger app on your smartphone.

Basically, you need to type in the message between two tilde symbols in order to strike through text.

The message your contact will see is the stylized version, so you don’t need to worry about whether or not the recipient can see the change in text style. These changes are compatible with Whatsapp Messenger apps across all platforms.
