WhatsApp has released two new features for Android users of its new 2.12.535 update, which was released earlier this month. Those using the new update can format text – i.e. make it bold or italicize it – as well as share documents saved in their Google Drives.
In order to bold or italicize any text, put asterisk marks (*) and underscores (_) before and after it, respectively.

However, the text appears bold or italicized to recipients only if they also have the WhatsApp version 2.12.535 installed on their phones. Otherwise the text in the example above appears like hi How’s it going.
Since this version of WhatsApp has not been made available on Google Play Store yet, most users would not be able to use the text formatting feature yet.

The other key feature WhatsApp has introduced for Android users is the option to share files shared in their Google Drives. However, the files are converted to PDF and stored locally on the device instead of being shared as a cloud-based document.
In order to share files with others, users need to choose the ‘Browse other docs’ option in ‘Document’ under ‘Attachments’. Google Drive files as PDFs can be shared with people on older versions (than 2.12.535) of the app on Android as well as iOS users.

Officially WhatsApp didnt update their changeling regularly.
But any freak user can notice this type of noticeable changes after using couple of hours or in more less time
