Vivid News 24: According to reports, the messaging service WhatsApp, which is owned by Meta, is releasing a new feature for Windows that would enable users to chat with one another. Users can send messages on their accounts that contain reminders, to-do lists, images, audio files, and documents. It is called “Message Yourself.”
According to WABetaInfo, it will reportedly be made accessible to desktop beta users with the Windows 2.2248.2.0 update. The beta WhatsApp functionality, which lets users communicate their contact numbers, will be available through the Microsoft Store.
Additionally, you can archive and pin the self-chat. Other chat services like Slack, Signal, and Telegram all include similar capabilities like “Note to Self,” “Jot Something Down,” and “Saved Messages.”
This is one application of this functionality. A secondary chat that says “You” will appear on the screens after updating the application. Open WhatsApp and start a new chat. Your contact will be listed at the top of the list; click on that contact to send yourself a message.
The implementation of this feature will be intriguing to watch because it appears to have a lot of potentials to benefit WhatsApp users. Users will be able to obtain essential notifications more easily thanks to this. Before this update, users had to star messages to store them.
By long tapping, a message, a dialogue box with the staring option opens, and users can choose to save the message in a different folder that can be accessed by clicking the three dots in the top right corner of the app.
Additionally, some users have used the app’s “click to chat” capability via the wa.me URL to self-chat. However, this new feature will simplify the procedure and reduce the extra labor users have to do to keep crucial messages to themselves private.
