How To Use The New WhatsApp ‘Message Yourself’ Feature

WhatsApp has introduced a new feature that lets you message yourself. Dubbed ‘Message Yourself,’ the feature has been gradually rolling out over the past few months, and is now available in version (iOS) 23.1.75 of the app.

This new functionality is perfect for those who need to take notes across multiple devices, or for sending reminders to yourself. Whether you’re using an iPhone, Android phone, or the WhatsApp Web and Desktop versions, you’ll be able to take advantage of this handy new feature.

Messages to yourself function and appear just like regular chats, but there are a few key differences. For one, you won’t be able to make audio or video calls, mute notifications, block or report yourself, or see your last seen or online status, but you will be able to send yourself voicenotes.

Despite these limitations, the Message Yourself feature is a welcome addition for those looking to stay organised and on top of their tasks. With its ability to seamlessly sync across devices, it’s the perfect tool for keeping your notes, reminders, and to-do lists in one convenient place.
