From Grocery Lists To Travel Itineraries, WhatsApp Now Lets You Message Yourself

by Sanjana Shenoy 95

Have you ever wished you could message yourself on WhatsApp —send yourself reminders, and save pictures and notes? Well, you’re not the only one. Some people have even re-purposed old WhatsApp groups, after other members left them, to message themselves. But now you don’t have to do any of this. The Meta-owned platform now lets you message yourself—everything from grocery lists to even travel itineraries.

WhatsApp Lets You Message Yourself

WhatsApp India has rolled out a cool new feature called ‘Message Yourself’. It’s a bid to make the messaging platform more convenient and user-friendly. You can have a 1:1 chat with yourself. More importantly, you can use the app to send updates, pictures, reminders, notes, travel itineraries, prescriptions and even grocery lists to yourself.
