For some time, WhatsApp has a feature called Change Number, which facilitates this process, although it is not as functional as users would like. But this will change soon, according to the improvements that can already be seen in the beta version of WhatsApp.

So far, the Change Number function only allows you to perform two specific actions, migrate all the content of your account, and unlink it from the old phone number. In the new beta version, it offers more options.

It gives the option to users to choose if they want to notify their contacts that they have changed the number, or not. As we see in the images they shared by WABetaINfo, we will have several possibilities:

We can choose to notify all contacts, select some of them, or simply inform people with whom we have an open chat. And if we are not interested, we simply do not select any option, and in the future we will have to carry out the process manually.

And a detail to keep in mind, is that the groups to which we belong will be alerted to the change, regardless of the option we choose. The rest of the process required to change the number in the account remains the same.

These new options can already be tested in beta version 2.18.97 for Android.

  1. I am a web designer and was on your site and I would like to discuss some options with you for improving it. I want to transform it into a powerhouse that is more suited to the business you run.
    As an expert and talented web designer, I have seen websites like yours that can actually do better with just a simple (yet beautiful) design enhancement. You could also try adding new features (e.g. shopping carts, blogs, apps, and others) to supplement your business and this is also what I do best.
    My price rates are not that high either since I’m reaching out. They’re rates that even small business owners can afford. So, if you’re interested, I can give you a call a time that’s most convenient for you. I hope to hear from you as early as later.
    Sincerely,
    Madeleine Newman

  3. Have you been thinking about updating your site to a more modern look and feel or possibly adding some additional features to the site that automate some of your business processes? If so, I’d really love to speak with you.

    I look forward to hearing back from you.

    • The website is amazing already, Omar.
      I just need to have better content but that requires hard work or an interesting live to be shared here, and I have not any.

  5. Hello, my name is Jill and I am a talented site optimizer. I checked on your website and I noticed that there are some keywords that you’re using on your website that search engines are not picking up. Because these keywords are not detected by Google or Bing or other search engines, you’re losing points in possibly ranking high on search engine results.

    I can help you with that.

    I’ve worked with similar situations before so I know how to help you with that problem. If you’re interested in hearing more about it I can call you to tell you more about it. If you would also like to know more about the fees of my services, they’re affordable even for small business.

    Hoping to hear from you,
    Jill Grant | Site Optimizer

  6. I’m reaching out to see if you need help with your website. Are there changes that you would like to make to the site? If so, I’d love to speak with you.

    Just a little bit about me, I’ve been developing sites for over a decade now and I’m excellent at what I do. I am able to do both programming and design work. I use many different programming languages, website platforms, and shopping carts, and have a particular specialty in the “WordPress” website platform (I would love to tell you more about it if you’re not familiar).

    If you’re interested in updating the site, please just reply and let me know and I will send you more info and try to set up a time to talk.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Best Regards,
    Edward Frez | Web Developer

  11. Good day,

    I stumbled onto your website while doing research for one of my clients and I was wondering if you would be in need of my services. I am a professional web developer and have years of experience in my field. Any task that you need to get done I am the right person to do it. I am capable of delivering a high-class website that will get you on the top rankings of search engines.

    I offer the most competitive rates that you will find in the online industry, but I can assure you that it will be worth it. It would be better if we could talk more in a different communication setting. So that I can explain what services I can offer, the rates, and what you can expect to get in return. If you are interested kindly leave me your contact details and a time that would be convenient for you. I am excited to start working on this project with you and I would like to thank you for taking time out to read this.

    Best regards,

  12. Hello,
    I’m reaching out to see if you want an app built for your site? I’m an app developer that can design and program on any platform (Android, iOs, etc?). There are many different types of apps that can help your business, whether in terms of marketing, business efficiency, or both. If you already have an idea, I’d like to hear about it to help you more on how we can make it happen. I have some ideas of my own that I would really love to share with you of things that have worked really well for my other clients.
    If you’re interested in my services, I’d like to talk some more with you about this. When would be the best day/time to give you a call? I would really appreciate a positive response from you.

    Best Regards,
    John Simmonds – App Development Services

  13. People don’t click ‘next’ very often when they’re already seeing the first page of search engine results, so being on page 2 or beyond means that you’re missing out on a TON of business opportunities. That is something that I’d like to talk with you about.

    Do you show up on the first page of the search engines when people are looking for the products and services that your business offer? I have an idea that can benefit you. Let’s have a discussion about how we can boost your business. I will provide you with a proposal and some powerful information and stats from your website. The site optimization service I provide is very affordable and it will put your website on the 1st page of the web searches (which is where the profit really is). It’s really interesting information that I’m excited to share with you.

    Please let me know when we can discuss it so we can start putting your website on the front page of the internet. Can we set up a phone call?

    • Who cares?
      First page of Google is full of Google ads and their own services (Youtube’s videos, maps or Google Store) or even stolen content from many websites offered by Google as its own content.

  14. Hello,

    Ever thought about getting an upgrade or a redesign for your website? Most modern sites nowadays don’t just look amazing but they also have features that help companies who own the website run their business. I’m reaching out to your company because I’m an expert website designer who is looking for new clients to work with. I have already worked on a lot of projects before and my clients are all very happy with the work that I do to help their business grow. I can show you some if you’re interested

    I was looking at your website and noticed that you have good content, but it seems your website can do better in being more profitable for your business if the user-interface is improved.

    I’d like to offer you a complimentary consultation about your website, how I can make it more beautiful and functional, and how you can make it more profitable for you and your company. Let me know if this is something you’d like to know more about. Can we set up a phone call?

I can upgrade your existing website or build you a new one completely that has all of the modern features and functionality. Do you have some free time in the next few days for a quick consultation call? I can give you some ideas, get your feedback and give you a proposal.

    I’d really like to be of assistance and make the site better. Please let me know what you think.

    Thanks,
