Earlier this month, WhatsApp users learned how the chat switch and sync features could work across multiple devices. Now, details have emerged on how the chat platform can further enhance the feature.
WABetaInfo reports that the Facebook-owned service will soon allow users to transfer their chats to a different phone number.
Currently, if the user wants to restore the WhatsApp chat backup, the phone must have the same number and operating system as the previous device. While moving chats from Android to iOS is being tested, WhatsApp may also want to allow users to move their messages to new phone numbers.

Along with your chats, WhatsApp will also move media files to an alternate phone number. The process to change your WhatsApp phone number must be started before you start transferring your chat history.
WABetaInfo also reports that the feature is currently being developed for Android and iOS phones. This should be available via a future update.
