The ability to send yourself messages is honestly very underrated. Especially if you are using the same app on multiple devices. WhatsApp has been getting a lot of new features lately. Everything ranging from having an increased number of people you can add to group chats to creating group polls and more. Now, the service is working on introducing a feature that will let you message yourself and, in addition to that, save messages for later.
WhatsApp will Soon Become More Convenient as it Will Let You Message Yourself and Share Files, Important Messages, or Reminders
This is a rather small change but a useful one. Based on a new report from WABetInfo, WhatsApp is currently in the process of testing a feature that simply lets you send messages to yourself. While it might seem unusual, this is great for those who are looking to send themselves messages as reminders or those who use the same platform on multiple devices. When I told my friends about it, they showed great interest n it and some even mentioned how they have been using workarounds for a long time.
It's also worth noting that you can still reply to yourself using the wa.me link or by creating a group in which you are the only member, but that is not the way you would want to go with when it comes to convenient messaging. Messaging yourself has a lot of benefits such as the ability to remind yourself of something, or send a file. It's a lot like emailing yourself, a thing that most of us have done in the past, including myself.
The latest feature was found in the WhatsApp v184.108.40.206 beta of Android. The source has also noted that some users are already getting access to use this feature, which means that the feature might be rolling out to everyone pretty soon.
Using this feature is fairly easy, all you have to do is tap on the floating action button that you can find on the bottom right corner of your screen. You will then get an option to send a message to a new chat, a new group, or a community. Below all of the other option, you will see yourself in the contact list. Just tap that and message away.
Again, the feature is not rolling out to everyone at the moment, but it seems that the company is hard at work with this feature.
