WhatsApp betas on Android make it easier to talk to yourself

Two new WhatsApp betas are currently available for Android users. One makes it much easier to self-message and the other introduces Companion Mode, which lets you connect up to four phones to one account.

WhatsApp technically already had the ability to send messages to your own phone number, but you had to use the Click to Chat feature to open up a new chat room and send it there. Now it’s much more streamlined. According to WABetaInfo (opens in new tab), all you have to do is open up your contacts list where you will see a new “Me (You)” contact and the words “Message yourself” underneath. Tap that, send a message to yourself, and you’re done.
