WhatsApp brings Message Yourself feature to Windows Beta users: Report

Meta-owned instant messaging platform WhatsApp is reportedly rolling out a Message Yourself feature for some users. According to waBetaInfo – the online WhatsApp feature tracker, Windows Beta users are getting the feature now. It is available for desktop users who have installed the latest WhatsApp beta for Windows 2.2248.2.0 update from the Microsoft Store. The feature is expected to roll out to more users in the coming days.

The ‘Message Yourself’ feature allows WhatsApp users to send texts, media and notes to themselves. Currently, users rely on tricks like using wa.me/+91 followed by their 10-digit mobile number to send messages to themselves.

WhatsApp desktop users can go to the Microsoft Store to install the beta version for Windows 2.2248.2.0 on their computer/laptop. After downloading the update, they will see an icon in the cell that represents their personal chat. Every time users send a message to chat using their own phone number, the message is delivered to all linked devices, so they are always available. Messages sent to this chat are end-to-end encrypted, just like any other messages on WhatsApp.

As a reminder, the feature rolled out to Android and iOS users last month. In order to use WhatsApp’s Message Yourself feature, users must update the WhatsApp app on their smartphone. To do this, they can go to the Google Play Store/Apple App Store and install the latest version of the app. When they are done, they should follow these instructions
