TEXT Object

Parameter Type Description Value / Pattern
*body String Contains the text of the message, which can contain URLs and formatting. Maximum length: 4096 characters Hi, How can I help you?
preview url Boolean Set to true to have the WhatsApp Messenger and WhatsApp Business apps attempt to render a link preview of any URL in the body text string. URLs must begin with http:// or https://. If multiple URLs are in the body text string, only the first URL will be rendered. If preview_url is omitted, or if unable to retrieve a preview, a clickable link will be rendered instead.
"text":{
    "preview_url": true,
    "body": "Hi, How can I help you?"
}
Formatting Symbol Example
Bold Asterisk (*) Your total is $10.50
Italics Underscore (_) Welcome to WhatsApp!
Strike-through Tilde (~) This is ~better~ best!
Code Three backticks (```) ```print 'Hello World';```
