Tech: Now you will be able to send messages to yourself on WhatsApp, know-how!
WhatsApp has introduced a new feature on its platform, which will allow users to send messages to themselves. Earlier this month, reports pointed to the Meta-owned messaging app working on a feature that would enable users to text themselves. Now, according to a report by WABetaInfo, the company has rolled out the functionality for select users who are using the company's beta app on Android and iOS.
The report states that WhatsApp's Message Yourself feature is available on WhatsApp beta for iOS version 22.23.74 and WhatsApp beta for Android version 188.8.131.52.
The screenshot of the new feature shared by the blog site shows that with this update the personal contacts of the users will now appear directly in the contact list. When users tap on their personal contact, a WhatsApp chat will appear under the user's name in the top menu with the label 'Message yourself' in gray color.
Furthermore, the report states that messages that users share with themselves will be reflected on their linked devices and will be end-to-end encrypted (E2EE) just like all other conversations on the platform.
