I couldn’t help but chuckle, when i saw this this feature on Signal app. Thanks to Elon Musk, i now have a chance to add a blog about it :D

What is it ?

A Note to Self , is a self conversation chat window, where the user will be able to save for themselves privately Images/Documents/Contacts/Location/text msgs etc.

Why is it needed ?

How many of us, have created a whatsapp group and then removed the members and kept the group for ourselves, in-order to store media content and important documents/ links etc ?

It is quite an important features, considering users share sensitive content , personal documents, memes etc, it would be easier to store it in the app itself and not as screenshots or forward to mail etc.

This is definitely a “Must have” feature and i have already stated storing stuff in it :) have u explored it yet ?
