Let’s see how to do this on the WhatsApp app and Web.
Here, I’m using Google Pixel 4a (Android 12), iPhone (iOS 15.2), and Windows 11 PC. Let’s start.
How to Change WhatsApp Font Size on Android
Here are the steps:
Open the WhatsApp app and tap the three vertical dots at the top right.
Select “Settings.” Tap “Chats” between “Account” and “Notifications.”
Select “Font size” between “Media visibility” and “Keep chats archived.”
You’ll see these three options in the popup – Small, Medium, and Large.
Choose the one you want.
That’s all. You’ll see the font size change on the chat screen for contacts and groups. Also, keep in mind that the font size change only applies to you.
How to Change Font Size on WhatsApp (iPhone)
WhatsApp for iPhone cannot change the font size like WhatsApp for Android.
But you can change the WhatsApp font size by changing the text size of the iPhone.
How to Change Font Size on WhatsApp Web
On WhatsApp Web, you can change the font size by using the “zoom” option in the browser. I’m using the Chrome browser here.
Press the Ctrl key and scroll the mouse wheel down to bigger the font size.
Press the Ctrl key and scroll the mouse wheel up to smaller the font size.
Here’s an alternate method:
Open WhatsApp Web. Click the three vertical dots at the top right.
Besides Zoom, you can see + and -. The former increases the font size, and the latter decreases it. Use the one you prefer.
