WhatsApp, owned by Meta, is one of the best messaging apps, with its end-to-end encrypted chats also offering a lot of features. A new feature in the works that is said to be released is called “Message Yourself”. It is said to be currently available in a stable build for iOS users.

As noted by WABetaInfo, the new feature allows users to send messages to their own phone numbers. To be clear, WABetaInfo’s shared screenshot gives us a clear idea of ​​what the feature will look like on users’ WhatsApp home screen. It will appear as a chat just like other contacts on the conversation page.

Although it appears in the contact list on the messaging platform, it is addressed as “You” next to your own contact name. The report further states that this feature can also be found on all your linked devices, including your smartphone or computer. It is unclear whether it would also be seen on the web-based version of WhatsApp in addition to the native dedicated app.
