Can I send myself a WhatsApp message? Now you can…

WhatsApp works in a new personal chat that will allow users to send messages to themselvess within the application itself and even having different devices linked to the account.

So far, users of the instant messaging ‘app’ they have had to resort to other alternatives to be able to use this service as a notepad or to save messages and text and have them at your fingertips at any time.

Among some of the most common tricks they are to create a group with another person and delete them, then remain as the only participant and admin in chat.

Nevertheless, this option does not support multi-device function, since when multiple devices linked with a single WhatsApp account are used, this chat only appears on the main device.

now whatsapp has started to develop a new feature that will allow users to send messages to themselves without resorting to these tricksso and as the specialized portal WABetaInfo has advanced.

This portal has discovered such functionality in the beta of WhatsApp for Desktop. Thus, in this update, the user’s own telephone number is presented as the first contact in the application’s agenda.

Users will be able to access this functionality from all devices linked to your account, regardless of whether it is the main ‘smartphone’ or the other devices to which said WhatsApp account has been linked.

This will be possible thanks to the new multi-device version that the company is currently working onwhich is expected to be available in the future for both android devices What iOS.
