What is LINE?

LINE is an individual and group messaging platform. In addition to text, voice and video chat, a key feature of LINE messaging is ‘stickers’. Stickers are large animated emojis that can be used in messages and are suggested automatically based on what you type into the chat. They are often used in lieu of words to communicate. Premium stickers can be purchased in sticker packs using the in-app currency LINE Coins. Sticker packs can also be associated with brands, celebrities and news providers who have official LINE accounts.

LINE incorporates social media functionality via a timeline, which is viewable by all your contacts. LINE also offers games where you create an avatar to interact with other users and camera filters. Both these features include in-app purchasing.
