The global messaging giant WhatsApp is preparing to roll-out a big feature in India. On Monday, the Meta-owned messaging platform announced that it will be launching the feature of 'Message Yourself' in India. Without mentioning any specific date of the launch, the company asserted that the feature will be available in the country in the coming weeks.
In a statement, WhatsApp said that the feature is a 1:1 chat with yourself to send notes, reminders, and updates. "This feature will be available on Android and iPhone and will be rolled out to all users in the coming weeks", the company added. This feature will be aiding the users to send notes, reminders, and other important events to themselves.
After being launched, the users can use the new feature by opening WhatsApp, creating a new chat, and then by clicking on their contact at the top of the list and start messaging themselves. It must be noted that earlier this month, Meta Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg made an announcement about Communities on WhatsApp along with several new features.
He said, "We are launching Communities on WhatsApp. It makes groups better by enabling sub-groups, multiple threads, announcement channels, and more. We are also rolling out polls and 32 person video calling too. All secured by end to end encryption, so your messages stay private."
It has been reported that WhatsApp is also working on a mute shortcut for group chats for a future update of WhatsApp desktop beta. This Mute shortcut will be getting displayed at the top of the group chats and will be aiding the users to disable notifications of messages received in the group.
