To make crossed-out text on WhatsApp, users can add a tilde (~) to the front and back of the text you want to send, for example ~ hello ~ appears as hello.

Combining Bold + Italic + Strikethrough

In addition, you can be more creative with punctuations by combining two or more for example: _*hello*_ appears as hello or _~*hello*~_ appears as hello

In order to change the text format as above, make sure you use Android OS with a minimum of 4.0.3 and iOS with a minimum of 9.0. This code can also be used via desktop versions of WhatsApp and web clients.
