Good news for WhatsApp users – the popular messaging app has just rolled out a new feature that makes it easier than ever to message yourself. With this new update, you can now send messages directly to yourself, without going through any of your contacts.
The feature is called “Self-Message” and it works just like any other conversation on WhatsApp, with the only difference being that you’re messaging yourself. It allows users to send themselves notes, reminders, and shopping lists on WhatsApp.
This is a great way to keep track of important information and access it easily from your other WhatsApp conversations.
The Meta-owned messaging app announced a new feature that will be gradually released to all Android and iPhone users in the next few weeks.
WhatsApp beta tracker WABetaInfo reported in late October that the company initially tested the feature with some beta testers. The company has now confirmed to TechCrunch that they have begun rolling out this new feature globally. This is a significant change for the company, and they are excited to see how it helps their users worldwide.
WhatsApp users will see their contact name at the top of their contacts list when they create a new chat. If they tap on that contact, it’ll take them to the chat page where they can message themselves.
Some WhatsApp users have found a workaround to message themselves, even though the native feature is relatively new.
The new offering from the app removes the additional steps that users needed to self-chat using the wa.me URL. Before, you could only message yourself through the app’s “click to chat” feature, but this makes it much easier.
With this feature, users can pin their self-chat messages to the top of the conversation list so they don’t have to search through all their other chats.
If you’re looking for a WhatsApp alternative, Signal has a feature–“Note to Self”–that allows users to create messages intended only for themselves.
WhatsApp recently released a new feature that makes it easier for users to send messages to themselves. However, Signal doesn’t have this same feature and instead requires users to search and select the contact entry “Note to Self” to use it.
In the same way, the community platform Slack has a special area titled “Jot Something Down” to let users send themselves notes.
Telegram offers a feature called Saved Messages that allows users to bookmark important messages, save notes and reminders, and access them at any time. To access saved messages, go to the top of the chats screen.
Telegram users on Android can access the feature by tapping the hamburger menu, while those on iOS need to go through the settings menu.
WhatsApp’s self-massage feature is a welcome addition to the app, allowing users to easily message themselves without having to search for workarounds. This new feature should make keeping track of important information much easier.
With this update, WhatsApp is making it easier for users to save important messages, reminders, and notes in one place. So, whether you’re sending yourself shopping lists or notes on upcoming projects, the new self-message feature has got you covered now!
