It’s a small update compared to more recent additions, but WhatsApp now lets you write in different formats.
When sending messages, you can add certain characters before and after the words or sentences to make them go Bold, Italic or Strikethrough. This can be used to add emphasis to certain words and means the app is taking even further aim at email and word processing apps.

Bold: Add an asterisk (*) before and after the specific words or phrases you want to embolden e.g. *test*
Strikethrough: Add a tilde (~) before and after the words or phrases you want to strike a line through e.g. ~test~
Italics: Add an underscore (_) before and after the chosen words or phrases e.g. _test_
Bold + Italics + Strikethrough add (~_*) before and after the chosen words or phrases e.g. ~_*test*_~
