    How to change number in whats app?

    Please explain?

    To change your phone number in WhatsApp, you can follow these general steps:
    1. Install WhatsApp: If you haven't already, install the WhatsApp application on your smartphone from the respective app store (Google Play Store for Android or the App Store for iOS).
    2. Open WhatsApp: Launch the WhatsApp application on your device.
    3. Account Settings: Go to the "Settings" or "Options" menu within WhatsApp. It is usually represented by three vertical dots or lines in the top right corner of the screen.
    4. Account: Locate and select the "Account" option within the settings.
    5. Change Number: Look for the "Change Number" option and select it. This option may vary in placement depending on the version of WhatsApp you are using.
    6. Current and New Number: You will be prompted to enter your current phone number (the one associated with your WhatsApp account) and your new phone number. Make sure to enter the new number correctly.
    7. Verification: WhatsApp will verify your new number by sending a verification code to it via SMS or phone call. Make sure you have access to the new phone number to receive the code.
    8. Enter Verification Code: Once you receive the verification code, enter it into the WhatsApp application to confirm your new number.
    9. Chat History: WhatsApp will ask if you want to migrate your chat history (messages and media) to the new number. You can choose to transfer it or start with a fresh account.
    10. Contacts Notification: WhatsApp will also give you the option to notify your contacts about the number change. You can choose to notify all contacts, only contacts who you've had chats with, or none at all.
    11. Finish: After completing the steps above, WhatsApp will update your phone number, and you will be able to use the application with your new number.
    It's important to note that when you change your number, your account information, including groups and profile settings, will be transferred to the new number. However, your chat history associated with the old number will not be carried over unless you choose to migrate it during the process.
    Remember to inform your contacts about the number change separately, especially if you didn't choose to notify them through WhatsApp.
