Bold: place an asterisk (*) symbol before and after the text that you want to make bold. Ex: *hello*
Italics: keep the text that you want to make italic, between Underscore symbol ( _ ) Ex: _Hello_
Strikethrough: place tilde ( ~) symbol before and after the text that you want to strike. Ex: ~hello~
This option is available at the top right corner of the screen. Just below the new group option you can find New broadcast.
