The said feature is now in beta according to WABetaInfo, a fan website that tracks upcoming WhatsApp features.

WhatsApp's revamped Change Number feature makes things a lot smoother and automatic. Now, the company is testing a feature that lets you notify your contacts about change of your number.

As reported by folks at WABetaInfo, the new Change Number feature is rolling out through a server-side update to WhatsApp for Android beta version 2.18.97.

However, with regard to the military operation in Afrin, Erdogan said he expects the EU's support in dealing with terrorists. So far this incentive has not been realised and Erdogan stressed the issue during the talks.

WhatsApp users can click on All Contacts to notify all their friends about their new number. Once the deal is done, the people you've chosen to inform will see a bubble of text in their chat telling them that your number is different. After that, tap the Next button from the top-right corner, enter your old and new phone numbers, tap the Next button again, and then enable the Notify my contacts option.

Having said that, irrespective of whether or not you choose to notify your contacts about the change of your number, the groups you are a part of will be notified when you change your number. Adding a compelling feature like QR codes - which customers like because they're quick and simple, and merchants like because they don't require substantial infrastructure investments - could rapidly boost WhatsApp's stature in the market. Now that it's in beta, the feature may come to the stable build soon. The move follows a beta test of UPI-based payments that required the entry of a user's UPI ID or phone number to transact, making it largely useful for peer-to-peer (P2P) payments.
