The world's most popular messaging platform, Meta-owned WhatsApp has enabled sending messages to yourself. While at first, this might seem like an odd feature, it can be very useful in a lot of situations.
This means that using WhatsApp as a notepad, adding reminders to yourself, or even sharing links is much easier. Some might find that they don't even require a dedicated notepad app with this addition.
This feature also allows fast and easy access to sharing files between different devices. Messaging yourself can be much easier than sending files to a file-sharing service and downloading them on a different device.
For example with pictures, one can simply send them to their own WhatsApp account and open WhatsApp on another device to access the file.
Here's How to Send a Message to Yourself on WhatsApp
- Open WhatsApp (on a mobile device or on the computer)
- Click on the new conversation icon on the bottom right.
- Select your own account from the list of contacts (should be on the top).
- Send a message just like you would to anyone else.
