Other Ways to Format Texts

Using Unicode for Text Formatting

This special text formatting uses Unicode encoding, a system that allows for special characters recognized by phones. Unicode is the same technology that powers emojis. By incorporating Unicode characters, you can add flair to your messages.

NOTE: Keep in mind this can reduce your segment lengths, potentially increasing costs. We highly recommend sending yourself a test message to ensure everything displays correctly on your phone before broadcasting widely.

Using Special Characters

You can use platforms like LingoJam to generate character encoding. Here’s how:

  1. Visit LingoJam.
  2. Input your text into the generator.
  3. Copy the formatted text you want.
  4. Paste it into your message composition box.

These special encodings can be used in conversations, broadcasts, the library, and essentially any part of the system where you compose messages. 

NOTE: We highly recommend sending yourself a test message to ensure everything displays correctly on your phone before broadcasting widely.
