You may not believe if I say that you can chat with yourself on WhatsApp. Yes, you read that right!

You can send messages to your own phone number on WhatsApp. This trick can be useful to save your notes or to-do tasks, so you don't have to install any third-party notes apps. You can try it for fun also and show off your friends.

Chat with yourself on WhatsApp

One of the ways to chat with yourself on WhatsApp is to create a new WhatsApp group and add at least two members in it. Once after creating that group, you can remove all other participants.

Though, this method works fine but it's not the right way to do it. This tutorial will guide you how to create your own personal chat on WhatsApp without using any WhatsApp group.

How to send messages to yourself on WhatsApp


WhatsApp has rolled out a new feature named "Click to chat", which allows you to begin a chat with someone without saving their phone number in your address book. You can create a link to open your own personal number chat using WhatsApp public API. Here's a step-by-step guide-
  1. First, open Google Chrome or any other web browser in your phone.
  2. Now type this web address in the URL tab:
    https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=yourwhatsappnumber
  3. Replace yourwhatsappnumber with your own WhatsApp phone number. Make sure to add the country code prefix before it. For example:
    https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=919999999999
  4. After this, open the link and tap "Message" button. That's it.

Now WhatsApp will open your own personal chat and you can send messages to yourself. You can also make voice and video calls, but these features won't work obviously.

Here you act as a sender and receiver both at the same time. So when you send a message, it will be marked as read instantly.

If you don't want to follow this manual method, you can use a third-party app called Open in WhatsApp. This app allows you to open WhatsApp chat without saving the contact in your address book.

When you enter your own phone number in the app, it will open your own personal WhatsApp chat. You can also attach a text message with it.
