note to myself
There are several reasons why you might want to send a message to yourself on WhatsApp, and likewise there are several techniques to do it. For example, you can create a contact with your phone number or use the WhatsApp link to write to any phone number, with your own phone number.
The application allows you to do this without problems, but it certainly does not facilitate it as is the case with Telegram. The WhatsApp chat with yourself is a normal chat, although it seems that the application will finally start to make it easier for you to use WhatsApp to save notesas we can see in a screenshot of the beta version of WhatsApp Desktop obtained by WaBetaInfo.
On this screen we see how, when pressing the new message button, the You option will appear, with the text Send messages to yourself. It’s basically the same as what you get if you add your own phone number to your contacts, but you don’t have to do anything and it also seems to show up at the top of your contacts list, making it more accessible.
It is not the only related novelty, and it is that according to WaBetaInfo these messages with yourself will sync easily between all your devices, including if you use WhatsApp on several mobiles, when this is available. This is technically possible now, but there seem to be some issues with doing it from paired devices.
