Called “Message Yourself,” the feature allows users to send themselves notes, reminders, and shopping lists on WhatsApp.

The native ability to message yourself is new to WhatsApp, but some users have already been using workarounds for some time. You can already message yourself using the app’s “click to chat” feature.
