Whatsapp will soon allow users to chat with yourself through linked devices

WhatsApp is aiming to add a fascinating feature that would allow you to send messages to yourself via connected devices, primarily for note-taking and other purposes. Unfortunately, the workaround required to use this feature at the moment is incompatible with the multi-device capability. Here are some specifics.

WhatsApp Self Message Feature is Coming With New Update

According to a report by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is developing a feature that would enable you to send messages to yourself from any connected device. The messages received to your number will also appear on all of the devices that are connected, making it simple to carry on the conversation on any device.

An image of the functionality currently being tested on the WhatsApp Desktop beta has been posted. When it becomes official to attach an additional mobile device, something WhatsApp is also testing, this is anticipated to arrive on WhatsApp for Android and iOS. You may see a screenshot of it below.

For those who are unaware, WhatsApp's multi-device capability only displays such chats on the primary device; the talks are not reflected on the linked devices. You can use the URL "wa.me/91" to send a message to yourself if you do not have multi-device support. You can start a discussion by entering your phone number, and it will also appear on your smartphone.

There is no information on when people will start using this functionality, though. Additionally, we don't know if this will be a recognized feature.

In related news, more Android beta users will have access to the Meta-owned messaging platform's expanded capacity for group admins to erase messages posted by others. Remember that this feature has been in the works for a long. In addition, more beta users are now able to view WhatsApp Status, which is its equivalent of Instagram Stories, immediately from the conversation list, just as on Instagram.

When these features will be available to all WhatsApp users is still up in the air. When this occurs, we'll make sure to let you know.
