The wait is over, as Meta-owned WhatsApp now allows you to send messages to yourself.
Texting on a messaging platform is arguably one of the most convenient ways to jot down ideas before we forget them or save web URLs you want to return to. After a long wait, WhatsApp has introduced a feature that allows users to message themselves.
The new feature was discovered by WABetaInfo in the most recent version of WhatsApp for iOS (version 220.127.116.11), which is now available to all Apple users.
However, the feature appears to be rolling out slowly, as it is not currently visible to everyone (I, for example, do not see it in my WhatsApp).
Start a new chat and check to see if your own contact is at the top of your contacts list to see if you have the self DM feature. When you open this chat, you’ll notice the caption “Message yourself.”
According to WABetaInfo, messages sent to yourself will be visible on all of your linked devices and are end-to-end encrypted.
The feature is made even more useful by another feature that was recently made available to WhatsApp beta users: The ability to use the same account across multiple devices, including smartphones and tablets, in addition to desktop computers.
