Most productivity experts argue that this feature of WhatsApp can be one of the most effective ways to take notes and set reminders that you're completing your tasks well on time. While a host of note-taking apps are available on Android and iOS, WhatsApp has decided to capture a share of the market by offering a new feature that won't require you to open a separate app. The Message Yourself feature will allow you to send messages yourself and will appear in a chat thread that's similar to any other chat. This feature was initially part of the beta trial. However, it will soon be available to all users.
