WASHINGTON: WhatsApp, the Meta-owned social messaging application, has started rolling ‘Message Yourself’ feature, which let you chat with yourself.
According to details, the ‘Message Yourself’ was first spotted by WaBetaInfo several weeks ago as part of a beta test, but is now being rolled out globally to iOS and Android users in the coming weeks.
Once you get the update, you’ll be able to see yourself at the top of the contacts list when creating new messages. The feature will allow users to send notes, reminders and shopping lists to themselves on WhatsApp.
Users can also pin their Message Yourself chats to the top of a conversation list for easier access. Until now, you could only message yourself by creating a group with just you as a member or by using the apps “click to chat” feature.
