How to highlight specific word of the text in jetpack compose?

I wanted to know how to highlight the specific part of the text in jetpack compose. I tried Html.fromHtml() like this

Text(text = Html.fromHtml(" <font color='red'> Hello </font> World").toString())

But it didn’t work. Is there any way I can do this in compose?


With 1.0.0-beta03 you can use the AnnotatedString to display the text with multiple styles.

Something like:

Text(buildAnnotatedString {
    withStyle(style = SpanStyle(color = Color.Red)) {
    append(" World ")
