WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging applications on the planet. However, how many users still don't know that besides sending all kinds of messages and making audio and video calls, WhatsApp also allows you to send messages to yourself? It is a very useful trick that allows you to use this app as a notebook or virtual cloud. Read on to find how to do it.
Having a WhatsApp chat in which only you, as the transmitter and receiver of the messages, are present may seem silly. However, this trick has many advantages, among which are:
Before starting, although it may seem very obvious, the first thing you need to activate this trick is to have installed WhatsApp. To do so, you can download WhatsApp for free.
This trick works in all versions of WhatsApp (iOS, Android ...). Now that everything is ready, just follow these simple steps:
1. Add your phone number to your address book: follow the same procedure as when you add a new person to your phone book, but enter your name and phone number.
2. Open WhatsApp and create a new group. To do so, click on the drop-down menu at the top right and select New Group).
3. Select your phone number and a friend's number to be deleted later: you will be the only active contact in that new group (WhatsApp does not allow you to create a group from scratch, so the first time you must put someone else in it before you can expel them).
4. Give your group a name (for example, you can put 'Personal notes', 'My assignments and notes' or any other title you can think of).
5. Make sure you expel the friend you put in so you can create your WhatsApp group with yourself.
It's that easy! You can now send messages to yourself on WhatsApp, as many times as you want, and then access that information from your phone or through your computer.
Note: Now that you have a conversation with yourself on WhatsApp, we recommend that you pin it to the top of your chats so that you can find it quickly and easily whenever you need to.
