With new features being added as time goes on, WhatsApp now gains a “Message Yourself” feature. It’s perfect for those lonely individuals with no one to talk to… or just people who need to have something to use as a notepad when they’re on the go. After all, it’s always nice to have some assurance that you’ll remember those random thoughts throughout the day – and especially when it’s accessible via mobile and PC.
As expected, this feature was at first, part of a beta test then rolled out to everyone once proven useful. Users will begin finding their own contacts at the very top of the list when they make a new chat. This makes it accessible for quick note-taking and other important tasks. Users can also pin a certain message if it takes priority over the cluttered self-chat window. Obviously, this chat is only visible to yourself with the application’s usual cybersecurity processes keeping your self-conversations private.
Hopefully, they remove the feature to accidentally add other people to this specific thread.
It’s a feature that’s long been in conventional messaging platforms such as Messenger and Viber, so it was only a matter of time before WhatsApp gained a “Message Yourself” feature of its own. Considering the last addition, WhatsApp Communities, made the application bigger than ever, this revision puts it back into its roots.
