I am surely not the only one that sends messages and links to my brother on WhatsApp just to have them saved so I can have easy access to them, am I? Anyway, I won’t need to do that anymore as WhatsApp now makes it possible for you to message yourself.
As noted by The Verge’s Tom Warren, the Message Yourself feature has been rolling out gradually to users over the last couple of months and has now appeared in the WhatsApp update release notes this week. The feature lets you have a personal diary of information you want to save and have quick access to. If you ever feel bored and want to chat with yourself, the Message Yourself feature will come in handy.
The Message Yourself feature is nothing new. It is available on other apps such as Slack, Microsoft Teams, Facebook Messenger, and Instagram. The latest WhatsApp update also adds the undo “delete for me” option and the ability to drag and drop files.
