WhatsApp introduces 'self-chat' feature for beta users, know how it works


WhatsApp, a messaging app owned by Meta is working on several new features for the users. A new "self-chat" feature that WhatsApp has been working on for a while is finally rolling out to some WhatsApp users on the beta channel. The new functionality enables a single-person chat window to be created, which enables users to talk to themselves and save essential messages or files for quick access.

Since they are easy to search, these chats can be read at any time in the future. Users who have this facility can do so by navigating to the contact page in the app and clicking 'Message yourself'. Can test it with subtext. This feature is only available for users of the beta channel.


WABetaInfo was the first to notice the brand-new functionality for beta users. Beta users can find the option here.

The option to talk to yourself in WhatsApp has been around for a while, but starting a chat from your own phone number has become difficult. All you had to do was create a custom URL with your phone number, which would then link you to a self-chat window when you type it into the browser.


Step by Step Process to use the 'Self-Chat' feature

Step 1: First of all open any browser on your phone.

Step 2: Now copy “wa.me//” in the address bar and add your country code and your WhatsApp phone number because if you do not give the number then that number will be invalid. For example, Indian users can type "wa.me//91XXXXXXXXXX".

Step 3: You will be redirected to the WhatsApp page. Your phone number and a box that says "Continue to Chat" will appear at the top. You have to select that box.

Step 4: WhatsApp will show your chat window and all your conversations. You can then start chatting with yourself and include notes and other things you want to do.

It is important to remember that the process is the same for both the web and mobile versions.
