WhatsApp has made it significantly easier to message yourself, useful if you often use your chat window as an aide memoire.
Previously users had to use the “click to chat” feature to message themselves, but now, after the update rolls out, users will be able to see their contact at the top of the contacts list, tap on it and be taken to the chat screen where they can send messages to themselves.
Users can also pin their self-chat messages to the top of the conversation list if they don’t want to search for themselves in the chat list.
The “Message Yourself,” has been in testing with WhatsApp Beta users since October and will reach all Android and iPhone users in the coming weeks.
Hopefully, the same feature will also be heading to Facebook Messenger in the future.
