We published information on certain updates to the WhatsApp beta app for Android and iOS at the end of October about the ability to send messages to oneself. Actually, sending messages to your own phone number has always been available, but the WhatsApp beta for Android chat window has to be opened by using the click to WhatsApp feature. Finally, WhatsApp has just made this capability available to certain beta testers:

As you can see in this picture, WhatsApp is making it simpler for you to start a chat with your own phone number. To check if the functionality is already accessible for you, enter your contacts list. If your WhatsApp account has the capability enabled, you may now begin a chat using your personal phone number directly from your contacts list.

In addition, the following information is provided on using your own phone number to send messages to the chat:

  • Your personal chat and the messages you send to yourself finally appear on all of your connected devices, as was described in the previous post about the enhancements for sending messages to yourself.
  • Today, certain iOS beta users could also get the same functionality. When the rollout is expanded to include more iOS beta testers, there may be an announcement where you can find some additional information.

Some beta testers have received the option to start a conversation using their own phone number directly from their contacts list, and more people will get it over the next few days.
