I upgraded to a new Android phone and plan to use WhatsApp on this phone with my old number. For the purposes of this question, I do not have my old phone with me, and do not have a chat backup (actually, my backup got corrupted somehow, long story, but let's assume I don't have access to any backup/history).
Now, this whatsapp account was part of several groups.
- Is there any way I can send a message to those groups? Since my number didn't change, I should be still part of the groups but I don't see any.
- If someone sends a message on that group, will I receive it on my new phone? (The same way I'd receive a DM from a single person who still has my old number)
- Some of these groups required admin permission to send messages, which I previously had. Would I need to ask for that permission again?
