After months of being in the beta stage and only recently coming out on Android, WhatsApp has finally started a broader rollout of the option that allows you to send messages to yourself. At first, it may seem like a feature you won’t need, but if you are someone who uses WhatsApp on multiple devices and wants to share documents or data with yourself, this feature is much more useful than you might think.
WhatsApp users on Android and iOS can finally send messages to themselves
With this feature, WhatsApp users will no longer have to rely on other means to transfer an essential document to themselves, or an image for that matter. The feature works as intended, and you can even have a conversation with yourself if you want, but that’s not the point here. The feature is mainly for busy people who want to send themselves a link or two every once in a while.
Consider this your personal bulletin board. I can imagine my wife no longer having to text me the grocery list so she can remember. The update is now rolling out widely for both Android and iOS users. However, most Android users, including me, have been using this feature for some time now.
If you want to know how you can send messages through WhatsApp, you simply have to open the menu from where you can select the contacts with whom you can chat. In that list, you will see your name at the top; tap it and start chatting. The best? Everything you send is synced across all your devices, so you really don’t have to worry about missing that important link.
