So you can change your WhatsApp number without losing conversations or contacts

So you can change your WhatsApp number without losing conversations or contacts

WhatsApp is the most used instant messaging application in the world, but there are functions that not everyone knows about yet. The app offers an option within its app that allows you to change the number without losing contacts or conversations.

The first condition is that the phone is connected to the Internet and has the ability to receive calls and text messages. Once you are sure of that, you have to enter WhatsApp through the device, click on Settings and Account and change the number.

The application will ask for the old and new phone number, as well as provide the option to modify the country code, in case the number has changed due to the user moving abroad.

Once this information is complete, WhatsApp will perform the configuration automatically and the user will be able to continue using the app as usual, already with their new phone number. Your contact information, chats, and groups you’re included in will remain the same.

It should be noted that even the app offers the option to send a notification to all contacts, or only some of them about the change on the phone, so that they are aware of the change.
