How to change font size in WhatsApp for Android

WhatsApp allows you to configure various aspects of the app to your liking, e.g. B. the font size or the font of the texts that we find on the user interface. If you have visual problems or just Want to see WhatsApp messages larger, you are in the right place. To change font size you just have to follow a few simple steps that will take you no more than a minute. We’ll also answer some questions you might have, such as whether enlarging the Android keyboard also works. We tell you all about it below.

Small is the smallest text size, Medium is the standard size and Large is the biggest. Note that these changes only affect WhatsApp, not the whole phone.

At this point we would like to point out that while these customization options are more than sufficient for their purpose, they can be somewhat limited in some cases. For example, if those who need a larger format are users with special accessibility needs (especially them), it might be better to think about more comprehensive solutions. Such a solution would mean changing the font size of the entire operating system.

You see that changing the font size in WhatsApp for Android is a matter of seconds. The process isn’t difficult at all, and if you need a font size that better suits your vision, this is the quickest, easiest, least complicated, and least painful method.
