WhatsApp is perhaps the most popular app in India, but there is one useful feature that is a bit hard to find: the ability to take notes for yourself. Other messaging apps like Signal come with this feature, which is useful for making lists, saving links, and more. WhatsApp is used to share text messages, photos, videos, files, documents, stickers, and even GIFs. There are several features that WhatsApp has introduced over the years, and this includes the ability to archive chats, mute groups, and even highlight important messages. Being able to add notes to yourself takes the app a step further and makes it even more useful.
This function is very easy to use, but it is not well known among Whatsapp users. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to chat with yourself on WhatsApp to take notes, make to-do lists, and more.
