Messaging oneself can be really useful. You can quickly send yourself something from your phone and access the message on another device where your WhatsApp account is signed into. You can also take notes real quick with this feature. The options are many. All you have to do is learn how to do it.
This post is going to be a relatively short one as it is about a specific feature update by the developers of the most popular messenger in the world. I don’t need to introduce anything else about the app before I show you how to message yourself on WhatsApp.
How to Message Yourself on WhatsApp?
There are many apps with this feature. I have been messaging myself on Slack for a very long time now. But the thing is that Slack is used in professional scenarios. And other messengers are not as popular and as simple as WhatsApp. And iMessage is only available for iOS users. We have to be honest here; we were waiting for this feature to come to WhatsApp, specifically.
Talking with yourself is not a sign of mild psychosis. Believe me! Now even WhatsApp wants you to talk to yourself. To start a chat with yourself on WhatsApp, follow these steps:
- Launch WhatsApp.
- Make sure you are on the Chats tab.
- At the bottom right, select the new chat icon.
- You will be taken to the list of contacts, where you will see your name at the top. Message Yourself will be written under it. Select your name.
- Voila! You and yourself are on a chat. Spam yourself with messages.
That is how to send yourself a message on WhatsApp. When your chat is mixed up with all the chats, You in brackets beside your name and the Message yourself text in the About section will help you locate your chat with yourself.

So, I have shown you how to send yourself a message on WhatsApp. This feature was much awaited, and now we have it. I expect that WhatsApp will bring other useful features like this in the future. There are many other apps like WhatsApp that have better features than WhatsApp. But WhatsApp will remain the favorite of the majority of people because of its simplicity and ease of use. I will see you again fellas!
