WhatsApp is currently developing a slew of new updates and features to improve the user interface and privacy. Among the new features are ‘Profile photo in group chats,’ ‘Forwarding media with the caption,’ and a built-in blur tool. Although the exact timeline for the release of these features is unknown, the app has begun testing a new WhatsApp Self-Chat Feature. The quality is available to selected Android and iOS beta testers and will be available to everyone with future updates.

WhatsApp will soon roll out a self-chat feature: here’s what to expect
Messaging your mobile number was always possible, but there was no dedicated chat window on the contact list. Users even formed groups with only one participant to take notes or send media files.
When you open a WhatsApp chat with your phone number, the app will highlight your personal chat box by adding ‘Message yourself’ as the chat caption. Furthermore, your phone number will be displayed in WhatsApp’s contact list for easier access.

“If you send a message to the chat with your phone number, it will always be synced with your other linked devices because it is no longer an unsupported feature when using multi-device,” according to WaBetaInfo. Notably, using a different caption will highlight the chat with yourself feature for some beta testers.
The feature will be available to more users in the coming days. In a future app update, WhatsApp will update the quality of the ‘ability to view your phone number within the contacts list.’
In the meantime, WhatsApp has begun beta testing the ability to forward media with caption features. Users can forward images, videos, GIFs, and documents with captions with the new update. We could only deliver the press until now, and we had to rewrite the attached text. But this annoyance will be gone soon. The feature is currently available to WhatsApp beta testers for Android users.
