WhatsApp has recently launched a self-chat feature called ‘Message Yourself,’ on Android and iOS. WhatsApp rival, Signal, has a ‘Note to Self’ feature that addresses the same use case. 

The feature allows users to share messages, images, videos, GIFs, and audio with themselves within the app. The feature is already available to some users. According to the company, the ability will be rolled out to everyone in the coming weeks.

Users can click pictures directly and keep them to themselves within the app. In addition, they can record voice notes, use WhatsApp as a note-keeping app, and set reminders privately.
