A few new features have been added to WhatsApp for iOS and will gradually be made available to all users worldwide over the coming weeks. One of them is the capacity to engage in dialogue with oneself.
Users of WhatsApp for iOS can communicate with themselves
Previously, you had to send messages to a friend or create a group with just you in it if you wanted to save them or have a quick access location to find your notes. You can now choose “Message yourself” to begin a new chat when you click “New Chat.”
Stickers, links, images, videos, files, and audio files can all be sent. You are probably already aware that you cannot start an audio or video call with yourself.
The ability to search messages by date is yet another cool feature of WhatsApp for iOS. Thanks to the new date picker, you can find messages sent on a particular date by tapping “Search” from the contact or group information, then tapping the calendar icon.
The app is also introducing the option to limit who can view your online status. To modify the data, go to “Settings,” tap “Privacy,” and choose “Last seen & Online.” Even if WhatsApp for Desktop is open and you select “No One,” nobody will know you are online.
The ability to drag and drop sharing of photos, videos, and documents from other apps like Safari, Photos, and Files into the chats in WhatsApp is also being rolled out.
Not to mention, the eagerly anticipated “delete for me” undo feature is now accessible. After Will Cathcart, the app’s executive director, made the announcement in late December, WhatsApp began rolling out this feature. Through an update, more users will now receive this feature.
The app is available here for free download or you can update to the most recent version on the App Store.
