Have you changed your phone number recently? Your phone number is required to run several social media applications like WhatsApp, Instagram, Telegram, among many others.

Therefore, if you change your phone number you will also have to get it updated in these social media apps. WhatsApp users can do so with the help of the WhatsApp change number feature available on the application. "The change number feature allows you to change the phone number associated with your WhatsApp account on the same or a new phone," said WhatsApp in its FAQ page.The WhatsApp phone number change feature will transfer your account information, including your profile photo, name, about, individual chats, group chats, and settings from your old phone number to your new phone number.

It will also delete the WhatsApp account associated with your old phone number, so your contacts will no longer see your old phone number in their WhatsApp contacts lists.

You can choose whether you want your contacts to be notified about your phone number change. Your group chats will be notified when you change your phone number regardless of whether you choose to notify your contacts. Also Read: WhatsApp Update: Users can check status updates in chats list!
