You can now sext yourself on WhatsApp – perfect if you don’t have any friends

Lonely people rejoice: WhatsApp now lets you message yourself.

The popular messaging app has added a tool called 'Message Yourself' which lets you have a 1-to-1 chat on the app all on your Jack Jones.

You can forward messages to yourself as well as write reminders, grocery and to-do lists, and even use it as a place to keep track of links and videos your friends send you.

The idea is that you won't need a dedicated notes app on your phone anymore, and can instead just talk to yourself like a perfectly ordinary, functioning human being.

The feature was first spotted by the WhatsApp sleuths at WABetaInfo some weeks ago, when beta testers were given the chance to experiment with the 'messages with yourself' feature, which is now being highlighted with a 'message yourself' caption in the contacts menu.

The feature will obviously prove useful to forgetful people who need a place to keep track of everything, but it could also be a great way to keep yourself company on lonely nights.

You could ask yourself out for dinner or hear about your own day, right from the horse's mouth. 'Message Yourself' could finally even give you someone to sext.
