How to create a chat with yourself on WhatsApp
To be able to send messages to yourself you have to create a chat with yourself and the way to do it is the same as for start a conversation with any other WhatsApp contact.
Thus, to carry out this task you simply have to push floating button that is located in the lower right part of the app and select your own contact in the list, which appears in the upper part with your name, your profile image and with the label (You).
The chat you have just created is the same as any other, since you can write messages in it, send GIFs or stickers, forward messages from other chats and attach any photo or document that you have saved in your terminal’s memory.
