With more than 2 billion users around the world, WhatsApp has managed to position itself as the most popular messaging application in the world, which is why it is necessary to know the tricks that facilitate and improve the user experience. For a time it was possible to talk to yourself, not to have a conversation of course, but instead to save important things or use it as a notepad. This time we are going to go over this feature. Have you ever wondered what happens if you block yourself?
Well, first of all, we have to mention that WhatsApp updates no longer include the option to block private chat. However, there was a possibility in previous versions and if you click on “Block” the chat will disappear and will no longer appear as the first option in Contacts.
So, if the option to block your contact still appears in your WhatsApp account, what will happen is that the private chat will disappear and to restore it, you have to go to settings, find the list of blocked contacts and bring it back again. Now that we know what can happen, we’ll explain how you can take advantage of this chat with yourself.
How to send messages to yourself on WhatsApp
The procedure is very simple, just tap on the new chat as if you were going to send a message to any contact. You then need to select your own number which will appear at the bottom of the list and that’s it. If you still don’t get the idea, follow these steps:
- Open WhatsApp
- Click the Create button new chat
- Your contact list will appear, and your contact list will appear first.
- Select your contact and you can send the message you want.
