There are two methods to achieve this. The steps remain the same for Android as well as iOS with the options present at slightly different locations.

Method 1

This is a really straightforward and easy way of sending yourself a WhatsApp message. All you need to do is save your number in Contacts.

After saving your number in your Phone Contacts open WhatsApp. Your contact will be listed under Favorites. You can open it and start sending WhatsApp messages.

Method 2

The other method of doing it is with the help of WhatsApp group. Create a WhatsApp group by tapping on New Group at the top right on the main chat screen.
