New Improvements Added to WhatsApp Change Number Feature

A new update is now available for WhatsApp beta users, as the company has added couple of improvements to the Change Number feature which they plan to make available on the Android, iOS and Windows app platforms.

new update and features on WhatsApp change number

The Change Number feature allows you to change the phone number associated with your WhatsApp account on the same phone. Before now, your contacts won't be informed that you changed your number (only group members), but thanks to this update, WhatsApp now allows you notify contacts about you having a new phone number.

If you change your WhatsApp number, it migrates the data on your old number to the new one, preserving your chat history and automatically adds you to the groups you joined before the change in number; the groups members will also be notified of your new number. Additionally, this latest update has added three new options that enables you to notify all contacts, contacts that you've chatted with, or selected contacts, about you changing your number.

This is a really good improvement to the Change Number feature, as it will save users time and kill the stress of having to inform your contacts one after the other of your new number; since you can now notify all of them at once.

Checkout New Improvements Added to WhatsApp Change Number Feature

To access this new Change Number feature, go to WhatsApp Settings > Account > Change number. Now, tap the Next button from the top-right corner, enter your old and new phone numbers, hit the Next button again, and then enable the Notify my contacts option.

Who you can Notify About Your Changed WhatsApp Number

  • Group members (default);
  • All your contacts;
  • Contacts you've chatted with;
  • Custom, i.e., particular contacts you select.

The update and feature has started rolling out to WhatsApp beta v2.18.97 which is up for download via Google Play store for Android. Hopefully, it'll be available for iOS and Windows phone users in a future date. In similar news, WhatsApp recently added the option to transfer money via QR codes, with Advanced GIF Search and Sticker Search features set to roll out soon, too.
