Soon WhatsApp is planning to launch the new feature of “Chat with your own number” to Windows users. The message Yourself feature will help the users transmit a text. This feature was already launched to WhatsApp on Android and iOS last month. And now, the quality is available on the latest WhatsApp for Windows beta app. This will help the users send quick notes, reminders, or crucial information to themselves in a straightforward way. Earlier, users needed a second WhatsApp account registered to their other phone number to use the feature and perform the task.
A report of WhatsApp beta tracker WABetaInfo, the Meta-owned messaging service, has initiated with introducing the ability to message ourselves with the latest WhatsApp beta for Windows 2.2248.2.0 update.
To access the feature, WhatsApp users must download the latest version of the beta app from Microsoft Store. After the installation, the users will see a separate chat with their name followed by “(You)”. They can open the tab and send quick notes, shopping lists, reminders, bookmarks, and other things.
Every time a message is transmitted to your number, it will be delivered to all the linked devices. One of the most remarkable things about the feature is the chat will be end-to-end encrypted, so only the user who sent the message can see them across their linked devices.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp also introduced Avatars, which enable users to curate their digital representation. Users can choose the hairstyles, facial features, and outfits as per their choice from the available combinations to create an Avatar of themselves. The instant messaging app has also included 36 custom stickers that show different emotions and actions of the user. This Avatar can also be settled as their WhatsApp profile photo or used as stickers.
Instagram, Facebook and Facebook Messenger have also previously added support for Avatars.
